the linen jacket is now sold price drop on the tweed
I'm not a slim lapel fan, if anything I prefer a slightly bigger than average lapel on most of my suits. That being said I have an older Brooks Brothers suit, the fit is perfect, the shoulders natural, in short everything is right about it except the giant 4.25" lapels. that come within a couple inches of the shoulder. I believe it's an old Brooks MTM, and the big lapels look really out of place on the suit. Doing some experimenting with a tailors tape it would seem...
