This jacket is available from Mr. Porter. I love double breasted suits. In fact, this week I began working on my next suit, which is a midnight blue Holland and Sherry worsted 140 wool with cashmere and silver mink, which I had wanted to turn into a double breasted suit. However, my tailors convinced me not to do this - all three of them in unison. They gave me two very clear reasons.
1. Nikki, you arra too rotund to take on a double breasted suit and look good. You can do a double brested, but the loooka you arra after won't work on your body shape (NB: I have love handles, firm ones, but they are clear and present and this usually requires a workaround).
2. Nikki, do you want to spenda your life keeping your jacketa closed? It's a fina for when you standing up at a cocktail party, it's a finer for whenna you are walking the street, but what about driving ay? What about when you want to relax? There issa no relaxing in a double brested because when you open it uppa, look, look how it sags!
In the end we all agreed on a wide sweeping peaked lapel in a two button. My desire to look like Hugo Jacomet was thwarted by the sensibilities of these sagacious Italians who didn't want me looking like a Galah. Perhaps one day I will thank them, but in the meantime I will continue to stew.
