Ha! You think?

 

The best posts addressing the issue are Depos's two posts here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/207054/my-visit-to-napoli-mina-napoli-su-misura/3500_100#post_6670494

Yes, the jacket is from Solito as well

Formosa is very committed to the NY trips and we've hosted them twice in 3 months already, with another trip before the end of the month. However, they're discovering an unusual level of flakiness from US buyers who book appointments and then cancel or don't show up. So I wouldn't blame them or point to a lack of commitment if they decide to come less regularly. I've had discussions with them about this and they make trips to Seoul and Tokyo where they find customers a lot more respectful of their time, efforts and investment in travel costs.

Can anyone tell me what the "house" lapel width is for NSM?

I've seen some jacket, but they're all wide. Like Polo Garrison / Tom Ford wide.

How narrow are they willing to go? Looking for moderate width on a SB jacket. (notch)

I think it depends on how large of a person you are. I am sure it is more to their eye than anything. I would imagine they are about in the realm of 4" though.

I'm about 5'10, 175 lbs, though most weight is in legs

Something about 3.75 to 4 sounds right.

A lot of the lapels pictured here look wider though, no? (4.5+ inches)

Hard to say.

May look wide by today's standards, but fine to me otherwise. What really bothers me is the super high gorge in many of the above pictures :confused: 

post #3730 of 3926
This is too wide IMO. The gorge height looks fine to

Those lapels look fine to me.

For your frame use 4" for wide lapels

3 3/4" for a moderate width

3 1/2" if you want a trimmer look. This is sort of a nondescript width. Neither wide or narrow

Don't care for lapels less than 3 1/2" but narrow lapels don't look good to my eye. Subjective call of course

Narrow lapels make your chest and shoulder look wider than they are and disproportionate. Lacks balance

Lapel width on that jacket looks nice to me.

Oh, Chris, you break my heart.

I like the lapel width on that coat - wouldn't want anything narrower myself. Horses for courses.
