Tailored, classic and wear-with-everything effortless, the return of the double-breasted coat for the Fall 2012 season was a welcomed staple on the menswear runways. With updated variations featuring military inspired lapels, gold buttons reminiscent of our prep school days, and contrast piping, the traditional pea coat, trench and blazer cuts in stand-by cold weather colors reminded us that all trend influence aside, if ain’t broke, don’t mess with it. Pair your double-breasted jackets with denim and a t-shirt for a put-together weekend look, throw an oxford underneath to kick up a notch, or layer with a suit during the work week. Either way, line up your buttons and you’re good to go.
