I much prefer the look of double-breasted to single. They flatter the chest much more, especially if worn with a peak-lapel jacket. I'm planning on having such a suit made (light grey, one-button jacket w/ side vents, a 6x3 DB waistcoat, and pleated trousers). I'll post photos as soon as I have it made.

I'll have the waistcoat cut like this:

Here's the look I want to evoke:

I'm with Sator on thinking that men's clothes looked best in the Edwardian era, so I'm trying my best to recreate this with a slightly modern flair. How would you wear your DB waistcoat?
