I'm considering ordering my next suit from Chan as a one button, notch lapel. It seems as though the one button, single breasted suits shown always have peak lapels. Why is this? Is there something deeply wrong in combining a single button closure with a notch lapel? Any reason to avoid this combo?
I wear black C&J Sandown (chukka) with suits. I'm waiting on a a pair of C&J Chepstows to wear with jeans and khakis.

I second the recommendations for Briggs & Riley. At least as good as Tumi and far more reasonably priced.

The suits I have from him have very minimal padding (maybe 1/8" thick) and are very soft through the chest, etc. However, even though I've...

I don't do it when I just look in the mirror but rather only when...
