Cardigans are ten a penny on the high street, if you want to keep your look interesting a shawl collar is a subtle detail which will add a little curiosity to your outfit.

Topman‘s red double breasted knit (£40) is a retro style which looks contemporary and smart teamed with office trousers and lace ups. Avoid wearing it with cord trousers, otherwise you’re in danger of straying into Val Doonican territory, and what with us being so close to Christmas that is a scary domain to slip into. Neat indigo denim and slim-cut pressed trousers will get the best out of this cosy cardigan.

Burberry Prorsum and Full Circle bold navy jackets

burberry prorsum mac double breasted full circle matches navy blue cobalt.jpgBurberry’s double breasted jacket is such a captivating shade of blue. The luminous shade is midway between a navy and a cobalt and really draws the eye in without being too attention-grabbing. Unfortunately with a £1,018 pricetag there aren’t many people who will be able to actually afford it. Full Circle’s mac which comes in at £170 may not be the same luxurious blend of wool and cashmere but the colour is spot on and the fit is good.

Yoko Devereaux SupermarketHQ sale

Sometimes a bargain is too good to pass on, regardless of what season the clothing’s designed for. This Yoko Devereaux double breasted cardigan is currently going for $32, which is 75% off the retail price. Other bargains are this trench coat for $49 and this Queen print shirt for $17.

The downside to this near giveaway is that they only ship to the United States and Canada, anyone living elsewhere will have to look at the pictures and dream of wearing these pieces. I’m not sure what’s worse: missing a sale or finding a sale won’t deliver to your neck of the woods. These are the kind of dilemmas that should be going on the Jeremy Kyle show.

APC Herringbone Double breasted jacket

apcjacket.jpgHold your horses, I’m well aware that there’s no need to buy a jacket in the midst of summer. But think about it, with the economy crumbling and the 10p tax rate eating up more of your pay, it’s time to start investing in quality pieces like this APC herringbone jacket.

Whilst the piece does fit with the nautical look, it will undoubtedly be much too hot to wear a jacket. On the bright side, the double breasted trend is set to continue on into next winter at least, so you’ll be buying an item that is in fashion whilst remaining stylish. The price is a very reasonable £159 and it’s available from Start.

J. Lindeberg Double breasted Cardigan

By admin on March 10th, 2008

In the double breasting stakes, cardigans
lag well behind coats and even hoodies. Most double breasted cardigans look
like someone decided to add another set of buttons after they’d finished making
it. J.Lindeberg have avoided this with their low cut double
breasted cardigan
.

The best thing about this cardigan, apart
from the double breasting, is the dark red colour. Although we love purple, it’s
nice to see something different. Also, the dark red lends itself to being matched
with either pastels or dark navys and blacks. You’ll have to hurry to get this
though – there’s only one left in Large.

B.Son double breasted jacket

By admin on December 14th, 2007

Bsonjacket_2 I
was almost tired of talking about
jackets. Shouldn’t everyone have one by now? It’s so cold out that I’m
seriously considering wearing long johns to work. So cold that you should have
bought a jacket out of necessity not just fashion-based vanity (like I did). Any
coats you get now will simply be adding to your collection and I can’t think of
a better reason to buy a jacket than that. I seriously can’t.

This B.Son
jacket
is pretty much the standard for this season, I’m sure you know it by
now: double breasted, muted colours etc… However the bottom of the jacket
is cut like a waistcoat, which adds a little character to what would have been
an average jacket. For what you’re getting, the price is pretty reasonable at
about £275.
