OK, so I bought a handsome-looking (in my opinion), charcoal grey double breasted suit that I intended to wear as a multi-occasion suit, but chiefly for formal occasions and situations where business dress style is preferred. I walk into another men's clothing store, and I tell one of the clerks that I bought a double breasted suit and he says in a really fruity and snarky voice:
"Oh no sir, you don't want to get a double breasted, they're so out. You should return it."
I did not take his advice, and still have it. I can't see what is wrong with one, as they are still featured in many urban contemporary, high-fashion magazines. They were most certainly the hallmark of power dressing in the previous three decades. I intend to wear it to my cousin's wedding and my capstone (thesis) presentation. One of my clients, when I complimented his, said: "Wear one while you're still young and thin."
So my question is, are they 'in', 'out', and either way, are they still suitable (no pun intended) for a wedding or thesis presentation?
