Menswear 2012: Hentsch Man Double Breasted Wool blend Jacket

Posted on October 10, 2011


True monsieurs need not fear the classically cut wool blend double breasted blazer. Yet, for all the classic elegance of a well made DB, a simple law of style holds true- Honour thy fit. Fit makes everything look better. Too tight and you expose your physical flaws and spare tires, too loose and you look like you’re wearing your dad’s hand-me-downs. Cut just right and you have the makings of a look that looks like it costs a million bucks to put together.

Hentsch Man Double Breasted Wool blend Jacket

This Dark grey wool-blend double-breasted jacket from Hentsch Man costs significantly less than a million bucks. To be honest, at less than 500 quid, this four button closure with notched lapels and functioning cuff buttons is so cheap it’s almost a steal. More importantly, if you’re heavy set (I prefer to believe due to zealous daily gym work outs) like I am, the super slim modernist take on the traditional double breasted lapel cuts a rather dashing and petite figure on you sartorial saints out there. Expect to pay £392; Though Mr. Porter recommends black jeans- I feel that Khaki would look a lot more dandy wouldn’t you agree? [Shop here].
