The Doubler

With the double-breasted jacket cutting a swath through the italophile blogosphere, we’ve started seeing extra sets of buttons popping up everywhere. The first test subject? The cardigan.

Specifically, this Gant Rugger piece, dubbed “The Doubler.” It’s a bit more narrow than your average DB, but it’s also got some real function to it. Once November starts to show its teeth, the first thing you’ll want on your cardigan is a little extra fabric in front.

Together with another DB cardigan that may or may not be popping up in Jack Spade’s Holiday lookbook, we’re ready to call this one a trend.
