As trees shed their greens in preparation for fall 2009, the landscape will be lush with reds, oranges and yellows signaling the onset of a new, colder season. So why not walk outside in style? Without souring palates content with triple or double button suit jackets, the extra cloth and buttons of double-breasted jackets exude a well-kempt, cozy facade -- it's a tight, 1930s classy fit. Hang up those spring and summer jackets come fall, go to the nearest boutique and take up a earthen or neutral colored tailored DB with matching wool pants. Oh, and pick up some leather gloves while you're at it.
