Originally worn by American and European navy, the double-breasted jacket is nowadays a must-have in a man wardrobe. Probably it derives from the shirts used by Hussars, cavalry of late medieval Hungarians. Double-breasted suit jackets were popular after the American Great Depression, from the mid-1930s until the late 1950s, and again from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s.
Anyway, the navy jackets are very elegant and never out of fashion, with wide, overlapping front flaps, two parallel columns of buttons and a sort of triangular cut that enhance manliness.
