Either way I still hate the top two buttons, and I think the whole jacket would look much cleaner if they were simply removed from the original design.
I enjoy 4x1s almost as much as 6x2s. Disagree that the jacket looks cleaner w/o them - I think the 6x2 looks more balanced.
Do DB suits always and invariably have peak lapels?
They should based on the military lineage. Other lapels are bastardizations. If you saw a notch lapel DB it would look silly. I recently saw that Twilight vampire kid in a shawl lapel DB and he looked silly.
