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.
