I think they can. See all of the 1960s. Lean, clean cuts with slim lapels and slim trousers

I think narrow lapels are fine if you subscribe to the Mod or Mad Men look of the 60's. However, the narrow lapels are just one detail of many.

Can we be clearer here with our definitions? What is a "narrow" lapel and what is a "moderate" lapel and what is a "wide" lapel, in inches?

Dieworkwear, since you're throwing around gag photos of jimmy fallon in a david byrne suit, I'd really like to here your definitions.

+1.

Narrow lapels were the price you had to pay in order to be allowed to slap your secretary on the ass.

You don't like skinny lapels. You like drinking at work.

I believe you're (poorsod) some sort of doctor so I mean that as a general 'you' unless you PM to tell me which hospital I should be avoiding.

You might enjoy reading the House of God my Samuel Shem. It is about medical internship in the 70s at Beth Israel in Boston. There was a nurse nicknamed "Thunder Thighs" and etc.

I wonder what dieworkwear's archives look like. He always summons photographs at the touch of a button. Does he have them tagged by era, color, style, lapel size??

Did anyone ever get to the bottom of this?

Something about these Neapolitan Master "Sartos".
They look their age, but they all seem to be trim.

While it's odd that it should be necessary, it's also not really a big deal so I just supplied the info.

I think this may be due to them delivering some or most garments during the trips they make, therefore having not materials proof of delivering outside EU for IVA (value added tax, only applicable within EU) exclusions. Full clients details must be declared on tax forms. With my family business back home we some time ship out containers and that makes the declarations easy as they happen at the port.

Nope.

He's a 38.

Darker shoes would look better though.

Have to agree about the shoes. A pair of G&G Cambridge in Vintage Oak, or say, a pair of EG Dover in Mink Suede would greatly improve that extremely nice outfit.

In regards of lapels, I'm all for wide ones, but one has to have the frame for it, of course.

This is my first suit from NSM. Lapel is about 10 cm, shoulder about 19.5 cm. My next SCs will have the same width lapels but one even slightly wider, a brown Donegal, the cloth called for it IMO, I'll post pics later when I get it. Feedback welcome.


Sorry for the crappy iPhone pic.
