Newb question: For a lapel that wide, isn't it more appropriate to have a peak lapel rather than a notch lapel? Just a general question. I am sure this is bespoke so he chose to have the notch with that wide lapel.

PLEASE USE SPOILER IF IT IS A PIC THAT HAS BEEN POSTED PREVIOUSLY.

It's fine to have wide, notch lapels. Those lapels don't actually look all that wide, though. The gorge (placement of the notch) looks quite low, however.

+1 on that. Gorge is super low. From where did you purchase the jacket?

Peak lapel is never more appropriate than notch, at least not in a business wardrobe and formality levels below. For tuxedos and white tie it's the other way around.

The suit is bespoke from O'Kean (Despite the name he is a Spanish taylor based on Seville).

Shirt: Thomas Pink.

Tie: Ermenegildo Zegna.

Pocket square: Charvet.

Suit seems to fit well from what I can tell based on that limited photo.

 

Yes, it's not a common shirt, but I wanted one with horizontal stripes and I like it. I'm not a big fun of the white cuffs, but I found this shirt before I found a good shirtmaker.

I agree, with the quality of the picture.

In my book, you always get extra points for having the balls to go full-throttle three-piece. I think the power of the suit and the style of the collar both call for a bigger presence for the tie...whether that be a thicker tie, or just trying a bigger knot (I'd start with a Half Windsor and go from there). I like the white pocket square, you might do better with a straight fold as the fit already has a lot of flash to it.


Whatever people tell you (including me) you are still better-dressed today than 97% of men walking the streets. And I am just going to assume that you are not wearing sneakers or flip-flops.

 

Thank you for the welcome. I don't always wear three pieces suits, it depends on the occasion. I do believe that if I had "followed the rules" I should have chosen a Half Windsor Knot, but I did not felt in the mood to follow all the rules. Concerning the pocket square, I cannot tell you why, but I always start with the usual straight fold, but then when I look at the mirror I always end up changing it.

I didn't take a picture of the shoes. They are JL Chapel double monks.

Lapels and shoulders are like the taylor's signature on a suit. It is true that wide lapels tend to have a peak, but this time I left the taylor have it his personal way.

Peak is the new notch!

In this case it's not about following a "rule" just for the sake of an idea, it's about what will look best with the outfit.

loanshark, your fits have looked good, but there is something slightly off to me about the way your jackets are fitting. not sure what it is.
post #64469 of 78717
Pingson: Tie is nice with that jacket. I don't think the pattern scales clash.

o/o: Not so sure about the matching (?) hank against the jacket. Is it just the photo?

Kirby: Nice jacket

Noodles: It looks like you're throwing your shoulders back for the pictures. If so, relax. That will fix the bowing lapels.

Is suit.
