21st Century Double-Breasted Blazer
It’s hard to keep up with what is in and what is out.
Take writing checks, for example. Almost totally obsolete due to digital transformation. But after the check’s inevitable extinction, it will be reborn in the younger, hip generation. “Do you take a check?” will be the currency of cool (see vinyl as a case study).
Yes, the peculiar nature of what is in and what is out.
Certain double-breasted blazers qualify. The 1930s gangster, wide-button, wide-shouldered double-breasted blazer? Out. The frumpy ’90s businessman look? Certainly out (and good riddance).
But this double-breasted blazer? Definitely in. Perhaps it was never out. Consider the tightly stacked six-button front, the slim Italian fit, the breathable 11.1 oz. linen in irresistible summer blue. This is something you could get used to, in perpetuity.
Attitude never goes out of style.
