Despite the ever-changing fashion seasons, trends and collections our fashion still has definite clothing pieces that remain in fashion and are popular to be worn. Sometimes these items disappear from massive consumption and are won only by real fashionistas and dandies. As you already noticed, three-piece suits, vests, suspenders, bow ties are disappearing and it's quite difficult to find people who are wearing these garments. Yet, it's known for sure, that many brands start to modernize it and re-emerge in their collections.
I'll make him an offer he can't refuse. Italian fashion label Canali presented new menswear collection for Spring-Summer season during Milan Fashion Week. This time brand focused on suits, so that models looked like sensible gangsters. Models appeared on the catwalk donning jackets and pleated trousers, double-breasted suits, fedora hats, comfortable t-shirts, silk and leather jackets in soft pastels and light colors. Overall, it's bold evening look for elegant men.
If you want classic look, then double breasted suit is what you need. It's the oldest suit design that I know. Double breasted suits are worn from 1930's and they become fashionable nowadays. What means double breasted suits? Double breasted suit jackets typically have one to four rows of buttons (each row containing two buttons), one or two of the rows functional – the others are decorative and they're just used for classic look.
Elegant and luxury wear. French label Smalto presents its new men's Spring-Summer fashion collection. I enjoyed particularly every piece in this show.

Fitted suits, leather jackets, scarfs over necks, double-breasted coats, trench coats, raincoats, knitted cardigans, sweaters, double breasted suits in a creamy violet color, studded suits, driving gloves - everything so elegant!

Here you can find softer tones of lilac, dove grey and mustard, turtlenecks, double-breasted suits, retro two-tone shirts, patterned dip-dyed leggings, layered tops, shimmering coats, jet black suits, jackets with dramatically dropped shoulders, exotic prints and oversize parkas.

Peter Pilotto a young London label presents its Resort collection. I think the strength of this label are prints, classical jacquard cartoonish clover motif, like a vintage sixties print. Take a look at these twisted, pleat-front cocktail dresses, they are futuristic and have structured shapes. Amazing! There are few slim, double-breasted suits. The colors are bright yellows, crimson reds and tranquil blues.
