The Comeback Kid.
Today´s double-breasted, washed cotton sport coat by suitsupply serves as a good example for how certain details can decrease the formality of your jacket.
First, there is the number of buttons: the 4x1 combination isn´t seen as much as the 6x1 setting. Not that it doesn´t exist - it´s just not that common.
Additionally, the pocket style: we´re dealing with patched ones here, whereas a classic db would feature jetted (very sober) or flap pockets (still sober but not as much).
Thirdly, the fabric itself is very down to earth, the washed cotton offering an easy, not too soft grip, perfect for the casual use.
What´s your take on it - do you like it?
