Peak lapels are more formal than a shawl collar in any case.

Im no expert, but Im not sure. Shawl collars are almost always reserved for black tie. Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

Funny, I looked at that suit, and thought "Well the DB I just bought from Trini at least is similar"

Arg. I just ordered a light gray suit in H&S crispaire from Chan. I went with two patch pockets, thinking I'd wear the jacket and pants separately at times. Hope it wasn't a mistake. There are some great pics of light gray suits here. Part of me wonders if I should change the order to a mid gray. Any thoughts anyone?

Don' do it, mang! Light grey is the way to go.

Shawl collars are occasionally seen on lounge suits, but it always looks wrong to my eye. I know they were moderately popular in the early '60s, and I've seen a couple of examples in the last year or two (including Regis Philbin, which is a sure sign of something...but I'm not sure what).

It was. I wanted to get a tweed coat and/or a corduroy one this visit. But Patrick and Arnold didn't bring the corduroy book, since they had anticipated mostly summer orders. So I got a brown tweed coat and this light gray suit.

emptym, I think you would look good in a light grey suit with your complexion. I would suggest the Cary Grant look with a solid dark tie, solid shirt.
