The classic fashion jacket
In the men’s clothing world, the jacket is a must-have for the fashionable man. The jacket is among the oldest garments, dating to France in the second half of the seventeenth century, at the time of King Louis XVI. The jacket name is definitely a derivative of Jaquette. The evolution of the basic elements took place in Great Britain in the 18th century.
In the nineteenth century the characteristics of the current jackets were also stabilized. There are several things to consider when choosing a jacket, starting from the details that characterize it. The size of the lapel varies according to the trends, but the current rule is to opt for a slimmer lapel for a modern look. The shoulders of the jacket should be large enough to allow the outside of the sleeves to drop along the body.
The jackets are also different among them for the number of buttons:
– One button: This is a trendy option and usually reserved for evening suits.
– Two buttons: classic and timeless, the two buttons are the most versatile and wearable.
– Three buttons: perfect for tall men
The common rule for all is “never button the last button!”
