[Narrator] One of my favorite things is to demystify
00:11
these old traditional types of clothing,
00:13
like the double-breasted suit.
00:16
It is really the kingpin of your fall wardrobe.
00:22
Once you're buttoned up it makes you
00:23
look slimmer and trimmer.
00:25
It's like your coat of armor in a way.
00:30
It's one of those suits that I think a lot
00:32
of guys they sterotypify, they put it in a box
00:34
but it really does have a new modern look to it.
00:42
A double-breasted suit is always gonna
00:43
get you noticed at the office.
00:45
It is definitely gonna be a head-turner suit.
00:48
Start it off on Monday with a white shirt
00:51
and a grey wooley tie.
00:52
By Thursday when you're into the casual part of the week
00:54
put it with a beautiful polo shirt or
00:56
put it with a turtleneck.
00:59
At this point I would say every guy
01:01
should run out and get one.
