Double breasted

Double breasted coats originated from the business suits from the 20s. Think Al Capone. The double breasted cut were repopularised in the 80s again, and twenty years later, it no longer is a style for the mens only.

Here are two adaptations to the double breasted style – checkered or striped jacket with a briefcase and a hat.

The chemical engineering student from Australia, who is on a year exchange to Imperial College, has just travelled around Iceland and she said, “on an Island with population of less than 500,000, there’s this street literally packed full with vintage stores. It’s really amazing.”

Her dress is from one of those shops. I cannot veer my eyes away from her white tights – lucky girl.  The only other girl I know who actually has the legs required to pull them off is Gwen Stefani.
