I think it's supposed to be. It's called 'bleu de travail' (work blue) and some designers were trying to push it as a colour for casual coats this summer gone.

no it's not... they've been doing this for quite a few years now... it started as some sort of italian sprezz thing... now everybody does this thing and think they are cool. kinda like the felt lapel flower, collar points up, the spade (narrow end) of the tie on the side, etc etc etc ... not cool at all...

It's still a new style, ''new'' doesn't mean that it has to be a few weeks old. But yes it did started in Italy.

^^ ignoring the fit which is probably a function of an over eager stylist pinning the back like a corset, gigantic lapels on slim coat do not work. There is no balance on that coat. For that width lapel, the pocket flaps would need to be about an inch wider, the sleeves a lot fuller and then it would just be too wide everywhere, more like a 1970's look. Take an 1.5 off the lapels, add a bit of volume to the sleeves, lower the gorge a smidge, raise the collar and add a third button and it would be good to go.

But I thought you said I needed wider lapels frown.gif

Here's one laying flat:

Looks good to me too. I get what Ed is saying about the proportions....if we are looking at it from a classic perspective. But from a 'fashion' perspective I like it. The skinny suit with wide lapels is appealing in it's own 'special' way.

I won't be rushing to buy one however.

I like the overall picture, but ... 

 

wrong shirt (or at least the shirt collar is too filmsy/low)

excessive pick stitching looks a bit cheap-o

cuff buttons undone... duh

pocket square is alive?

that's such a funny reaction. no criticism, but in the US, that color blue has associations only with tradesmen in other countries, which we romanticize ... the butchers in Florence! so actually the thing that you hate about it is exactly the reason they're pushing it.

I'm not American and obviousy my cultural heritage is different...

This particular blue is reminding of my grandfather ones ...

I can see the tradesman association but my relationships to this particular colour is one of dislike.

L.A.S. is pretty obsessed with this color. It was all over Pitti this summer and, as is expected, the blogosphere jumped all over it. I will say his shirt (from his brand) is a great shirt. Spread/mild cutaway collar oxford is like the best of both worlds for me. Probably grab one or two more when ROTM opens up shop this month.
