A DOUBLE-BREASTED SUIT WITH A VEST?

A DOUBLE-BREASTED SUIT WITH A VEST?


I never really understand why it’s so hard to find a double-breasted suit that includes a vest.

In my opinion, three-piece suits do not have to be designed with single-breasted jackets. On the contrary, I actually prefer a vest with a double-breasted suit, mainly because when I’m wearing a DB I’m more likely to take my jacket off.

I don’t wear a vest because it looks good under a jacket. I wear a vest because it looks good when the jacket comes off. A vest hides the mess of your shirt, keeps your belly pulled in (like a male corset…especially if it has a good rear cinch) and ultimately maintains an elegant and sophisticated look when you operate sans-jacket.

A vest can also serve to keep your body warm. Therefore, to me, it makes sense for cold weather suits to have both a vest and a double-breasted jacket.

With that said, here is some 3PDB inspiration for today.

IT ALL STARTS WITH THE SHOULDERS


The most important element of any menswear garment is the shoulders(and the collar – but we’ll get to that later). The shoulders instantly define the style, character and formality of the garment.

At AoS we believe that the most flattering, elegant, comfortable and versatile garment is one with shoulders that are soft, unpadded and gently sloped. The basic concept is to create smooth, clean lines that contour, accentuate and elongate the natural physique of each individual wearer.

To give you an idea of what I mean, I’ve highlighted the lines and shapes that we aim for with each our clients – which is part of the reason that our basted fittings are so critical. These lines are further accentuated by the proportions of the armhole, the roundness of the upper back and the trimness of the sleeve head.

This is ultimately where the “visual art” meets the “mathematical science” of bespoke tailoring.


The next time you examine a garment, or a fitting, try to observe the lines that it creates for the body. This is often what people notice first, or most evidently… A person can be gorgeous through only a silhouette in the dark.

Thanks, as always, for reading.

We took all the elements that make a formal garment more badass (midnight blue, double-breasted, subtle pattern, grosgrain trim) and designed this beauty to reach a whole other level of formal style.

A few words come to mind: smooth, confident, rakish, unforgettable.

It’s sort of a blurry line; the difference between a dinner jacket and a sportcoat. It usually comes down to the color, the fabric and the styling.

We designed our silk rose jacket to float right in the middle; you can wear it formally with a tux shirt, bowtie and cummerbund.

Or you can wear it with a turtleneck and flannel trousers for a more casual setting.

CLASSIC NEVER FAILS


If you’re thinking about a classic 4-season tuxedo that you can wear any time of year, for any formal occasion, again and again…than think about a midnight shawl.

It’s still very classic, but not boring. Your average Jo Smo is going to have a black tuxedo, probably with peak (or worse, notch) lapels. The midnight shawl gives you a chance to separate yourself subtly with the color and the style.

Of course, as with all things menswear, nailing the fit is essential.

GO THREE-DIMENSIONAL


The dinner jacket has become something of an icon in menswear, often times becoming the go-to option for stylish men on formal occasions.

Dinner jacket fabrics typically have unique textures (that wouldn’t work for pants) which allows you to get a little more expressive.

This dinner jacket, for example, is cut from an extremely rare wool & cashmere fabric embroidered with a circular tonal pattern that creates a 3-dimensional texture unlike any other.

We haven’t released this jacket yet – it will be dropping later this week. The cloth is is very limited, so if you want to pre-order to guarantee yours, contact us asap.

Anyone can do a velvet jacket, but it takes a certain level of panache to pull-off the full crushed velvet tuxedo, especially in bordeaux.

Velvet is specifically designed for the winter – it’s warm and cozy like wearing a soft blanket and it looks absolutely magnificent against winter light and snowy landscapes.

Of course, this is a power move designed for the more experienced dresser.

TUXEDOS WITH A TWIST



Every year around the holidays menswear brands, magazines and blogs show-off their most elegant formalwear…although I’m not sure how many people actually wear black-tie for New Year’s anymore.

Here’s the thing about formalwear; it should be the opposite of an impulse purchase. As a gentleman with style, you should never be in this position; “oh shit, I have an event coming up, I need a tux, quick!”.

Even though you won’t wear it often, your wardrobe should always be prepared with a sharply tailored tuxedo. And not just be prepared to dress appropriately, but prepared to look and feel your absolute best.

It doesn’t have to be boring, either. Formal occasions are a time to have a little fun, take a little risk and enjoy the pleasures of classic menswear.

Here our friend and client Tyrone Naraine – a stock broker born and raised in NYC – gives us some ideas on how to shut the party down, no matter what year it is.

Dan,

I think manyof us readers would like to know more about the business side of Articles ofStyle; what projects you’re working on behind-the-scenes, your vision for thegrowing brand, etc. Personally, I’m as fascinating by the entrepreneurialspirit as I am with all the fashion & style stuff. Would love if youcould share some insights!

-Marcel

Funnyyou should ask this Marcel, as we’re currently dealing with a server crashdue to an unexpected spike in traffic that set us back a couple months onwebsite development… It’s been a very frustrating couple of days.

It’sa good question, but a long one to answer since we have somany irons in the fire right now. Here are some of the projects we’recurrently working on, at different stages of development:

·        Bringing on a business development team so Alex and I can focuson producing more, higher quality, content (2-3 posts/day)

·        The Style Guide development continues to be a focus for us, evenwith recent set-backs

·        We’re currently negotiating a production and distributioncontract with an LA-based media house to develop a new web videoseries

·        Our new e-commerce Shop will soon house limited editionproducts designed in collaboration with some of our favorite brands/designers(and eventually the shop will hold my own namesake line)

·        An updated commenting system that will make user interactionmore fluid, and easier to slide between the elements of our website (Articles,Style Guide, E-Commerce Shop, etc)

·        A weekly newsletter with exclusive content and discounts onlyfor Articles of Style readers

·        We’ve been slowly developing a concept for a Articles ofStyle hardcover book

·        “Articles of Style Premium”, a subscription based service withexclusive content and “insider perks” including private sales and event invites

·        Articles of Style is hitting the road! We’ll be traveling fromcity to city to document the style and culture, set-up profiles with localstyle enthusiasts, and throw private men’s style events for ourlocal readers

Thatsaid, as we continue to develop Articles of Style into the premierdestination for men’s style advice and inspiration, the website also continuesto serve as a vehicle for my personal career as a menswear influencerand relatable personality in the industry. Many readers think that this “job”is all about organizing photoshoots and publishing new articles. I wish itwere that simple. The reality is that I spend 80% of my workday on non-contentrelated tasks such as web development, negotiating advertising contracts,editing sponsorship offers from brands, consulting for menswear brands, etc.I’m a businessman building a brand more than an artist creating content…atleast for the time being.

Bloggingas a business is all about diverse revenue streams, and developing a valuableniche to deliver a premium full-service experience. It’s still just thebeginning for us, and I look forward to bringing some of these newer projectsto life.

 

2. Giving Off “Gay” Vibes

Hi Articlesof Style Team,

I live in asmall town where t-shirts and Wranglers are the norm. I enjoy clothes anddressing well, but sometimes I find that being over-dressed in a non-fashiontown can be off-putting to some people. Also, some ignorant folks here call me“gay” because of the way I dress. Is this something you’ve dealt with? Anyadvice? I know you’re a small town guy. Thx, love the site. 

– Tim L. 

Goodquestion. And yes, I have dealt with this. When I first started getting intostyle and fashion, I was probably forcing it and overdoing it. Partly to provea point, but also partly because it takes experience to appreciate subtlety.Early on my slim fits were a little tooslim, accessories were a little too too dandy, face was alittle too clean shaven… 

I alsothink that some of the people calling you “gay” are using the term in anignorant sense for meaning “weird” or “out of the ordinary”. They don’tnecessarily think you prefer men. 

Regardless, though,the more comfortable I got with style, the more natural it came to me and themore comfortable I felt with it (which people can notice immediately). Over time I’ve also developeda more masculine look, with simpler outfits based around classic menswearpieces, clothing with more worn-in character, and of course, now I prefer thescruffy beard.

It’salso very important to consider context for style. For example, I don’t wearslim three-piece suits back on the farm. I keep it simple in some casualworkwear  that still looks well “put together”, but not out of place.

Ultimately;consider scaling it back a little but don’t let others bother you. Keep doingyou. Guys called me gay for years…then I started dating their girlfriends…haha.Stay with it, you will build confidence and find your niche. It takes time butit will eventually be working for you.

 

3. Articles of Style Music List

Dan, Ialways love the music you guys use in your videos (or those coming back, by theway?) as well as the music you’ve linked to in past articles. I guess thisis not related to fashion, but definitely style…What’s on your playlist? Put uson to some tracks that inspire you!

– AlejandroC. 

Greatquestion my man. Music is a huge passion of mine, perhaps even beyond clothing.And you’re right: a gentleman’s soundtrack is a big part of his personal style.I almost always have some type of music playing – life is better with asoundtrack – but the style of music varies greatly depending on the occasion,mood, time of day, etc.

Toanswer your question directly, I pulled up some of my mostplayed tracks this month, in no particular order. Maybe it speaks to where I’mat in life… Hopefully I can put you on to some new artists, because music canbe very transformative…

Makesure to use some proper audio!

·        The Tallest Man on Earth – The Dreamer

·        Curtis Mayfield – Pusherman

·        Melody Gardot – Baby I’m A Fool

·        Kings of Leon – Beautiful War

·        Drake – Trophies

·        Boombox – Midnight On The Run

·        James Blake – Limit to Your Love

BASKETBALL STAR DUNKS IN THE WORLD’S MOSTCOMFORTABLE SUIT

 

For years we’ve been testing fabricsfrom all over the world, trying to create the lightest, most comfortable suitknown to man.

WhatI learned is, sometimes the good stuff finds you.

A fellow frenchman(although not Québécois)representing the historic fabric mill Dormeuil cameto visit our NYCShowroom a few months back.

Hehad a suitcase full of swatches, took his coffee black, and looked excited toshare some news with us. He began explaining an innovative new weavingtechnique that allowed them to create the “most flexible worsted wool fabric inthe world”…

“Ohyeah?”, I said…”we’ll see about that”.

I knew later thatsame week we had an appointment on the calendar for Donte“Hammer” Harrison, a professional high-flyer and basketballentertainer, so I though to myself; “who better to put this frenchman’s fabricto the test”.

Asit turns out, this magical lightweight fabric not only provides a full range ofmotion but it also breathes extraordinarily well and, due to its capacity tostretch, has incredible wrinkle-resistant properties as well. This amazingfabric helped us create the worlds most comfortable suit. And it isn’t just forathletes.

Ultimately,a comfortable suit is an excellent choice for those who travel,- as well asthose who keep their pivot foot down.

It’simpossible to create anything like AoS without an incredible team. So for thefirst episode of our new video series “Making It In America”, I thought weshould focus on the guys who are committed to making all of this happen.

Oneguy is missing from this episode, and that is our photographer and Art DirectorAlex Crawford – but he will be making an appearance in future episodes.

Enjoy!
