Gentlemen, meet your new suit: The double-breasted six button peak lapel suit


Remember how dashing Tom Hanks, Jake Gyllehnaal and Hugh Jackman looked in their double-breasted peak lapel tuxedos at this year’s Academy Awards?

No, this is not your uncle’s double breasted suit from the 8o’s so popular still with doctors at benefit galas. Tight at the shoulders with  minimal padding, a high armhole and cutthisclose through the body and shorter than you might initially feel comfortable with.

Here is exactly how to wear the look a little more casually and for a lot less money. The Ludlow suit, in charcoal or navy, is available exclusively online at JCrew.com. Jacket, $450
