But, that is not how it works in DFRPG. Read page 109 under layering armor. Permitted inner layers grant +1-3 DR to the top layer (which must be DR3+) depending on the material.

So someone with armor mastery and wearing two layers of armor, the inner layer granting +1DR to the top layer that is DR3 (making it a total of DR4) get +1DR to that (or DR5) not +1 DR per layer.
