We don’t feature anywhere near enough formal gear on the site, so we’re starting to remedy that by flagging up the new double-breasted suits at DNA Groove.

Yes, double-breasted. In my book, far smarter than a single breasted suit and still much less seen. Perhaps not a suit for everyone (it doesn’t look quite right if you are packing a bit too much weight), but if you can carry it off, the double-breasted in a ’60s style is a suit to get you noticed.

Three are new in at DNA Groove, with all three of these Barolo suits available ‘off the peg’ if your size is available (DNA make limited numbers, so sell through quickly). Saying that, you can get custom-made suits with the retailer, so drop them a line if you see a look and cloth you like.

As for the three here, there’s a choice of cloths – a wool/mohair mix or a light/soft wool, with detailing including button closing, ticket pocket, cloth covered buttons (on two of the suits), working cuffs and 7-inch side vents, plus 9-inch unheeded bottoms and frog mouth pockets on the trousers.

Prices are between 405 and 427 Euros.

    It’s good to hear you plan to focus more on sharp dressing… after all that’s what it’s all about. Holland & Shelly have recently come out with a beautiful English mohair line with some unique colours and the big news it that Dormeuil is coming out with an entirely new revised tonik line for 2013, very exciting. It would be nice to feature more about fabrics, linings, quality, where to buy, where to get good prices, what is a micron? etc..

    I may be able to offer a hand if you’re interested. Great site keep up the good work, endeavors like yours seldom get the praise they deserve.

    If you’re looking to feature more formal wear on your site you might want to check out the new AR Red Nick Hart collection if you haven’t already. It’s pretty cool, Austin Reed have collaborated with Nick Hart to create the Jazz inspired collection. You can find it here: http://www.austinreed.co.uk/fcp/departmenthome/dept/arred-nick-hart
