More double-breasted jackets

A few double-breasted examples from the Japanese RTW brand Ring Jacket. The Armoury, a new store in Hong Kong, has a nice profile of Ring in English.

This 4x2 DB I like:



Below is a single breasted jacket. I suppose the case can be made that SBs can take boldly shaped peaks. Even so, I'm not so keen on the exaggerated sweep, angle and height of the peak lapel:


Having said that, I know there are fellows who can make this look work.

That second jacket isn't a DB - it's a SB peak.

Thanks for the catch. Fixed temporarily at least.
