Single Breasted Suits

A design that was very stylish and popular in the beginning of the 20th century. It's simply a suit having one column of buttons and a narrow overlap of fabric. Single breasted suits typically have two or three buttons and a notch lapel. However, from 1930s onwards, peaked lapels, often on a single button jacket, have been variably in fashion, and this is now a classic. Narrow peak lapels on single-breasted jackets became popular during the year 2000.

Double Breasted Suits

A design that was very popular from the mid-1930s until the late 1950s, and again from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s. It's a suit with overlapping front flaps and two parallel columns of buttons. In most modern double-breasted coats, one column of buttons is decorative, while the other functional. They typically have one to four rows of buttons (each row containing two buttons), one or two of the rows are functional and the others are decorative
