In clothing, double-breasted refers to a coat or jacket or similar garment having a wide overlap in the front with two parallel rows of buttons. The wide overlap puts extra layers of fabric where the opening occurs to retain body heat.

In contrast, a single-breasted coat has a narrower overlap and one row of buttons.

Pea coats and some trench coats are traditionally double-breasted.
