The double-breasted suit was the real star of Wimbledon
This weekend, Novak Djokovic won his latest Grand Slam at the 2018 Wimbledon final. Congrats to him! (And we bet the folks at Lacoste are mighty happy about this development, too.)
But instead of, you know, actual tennis, let's focus on the other winner at Wimbledon: the double-breasted suit. Tennis is a notoriously stylish sport, and it seems that the guys attending the proceedings ramped-up their looks accordingly with some power tailoring.

Looking to try one yourself this summer? Suitsupply makes a slim-cut version in navy cotton that comes in at less than US$500. For that price, you can't go wrong. Enjoy!
