The refined and minimal dna of the single-breasted. The fitted shape, the narrow (but not too much) lapels, the blazer’s lenght proportioned with the line of the suit. The pockets with the flaps. And the trousers: straight but not slim…regular, in other words. Celebration of normality? Yes. Two or three buttons? This is a choice to be made in relation of our own build (three buttons are advised for men with some weight problems). Today we talk about the single-breasted suit, an evergreen classic since the 60s. If the shirt is white, the tie is narrow (not more than 6 cm) and dark, matching with the suit’s fabric, the look reminds us the fantastic four from Liverpool: Paul, John, Ringo and George. The accessories: rectangular glasses with a noticeable, but not vulgar, frame. The shoes: brogues are ok, but the monkstrap are more in fashion. With such a refined and minimal total look, you can exaggerate with the bag (in this picture it’s a travel bag): the accessory can be “out of measure”. It can be also colourful, and made of precious leather. Like crocodile or ostrich. Celebration of a little bit of originality? Yes.
