If you are leaning towards trying a double breasted suit for the first time (or trying one again after a previous disappointment) this “Nutter” suit with it’s trim silhouette following the contours of the body (as it should) makes a compelling visual argument for taking the plunge.
That’s not to say that you should run out and buy this one but once you see how well a double breasted suit can fit, hopefully your tolerance for ill fitting alternatives will be low.
This Crombie suit is derived from the authentic design of Savile Row innovator Tommy Nutter. Constructed using traditional techniques to enhance appearance and give maximum comfort, this quality piece includes a half-length padded chest piece basted to improve and maintain the chest, shoulder and lapel shape.
