It's now in a folder right next to an image I posted earlier in this thread:

Thanks guys! I wondered since jackets like this one look much more white than mine-- btw, I suspect this is the same TF jacket bond is wearing in the new Spectre movie/ seen in new preview! I prefer the shawl collar tho

Shawl lapel works better with the more casual vibe given off by the white dinner jacket. At least IMO.

It also makes it unmistakably a dinner jacket. Since many are self-faced (and some have uncovered buttons), they can just look like cream sport coats if they aren't shawls (which are essentially reserved for formalwear).

I disagree, sort of. I am having a cream dinner jacket made for my upcoming wedding and it will look exactly like the above, with the substitution of white MOP buttons for covered. I specifically chose self faced, peak lapel because I think shawl collars on a cream DJ can look waiter-ish/ rental like. Obviously thats my opinion and experience and not universal.

To clarify, I never meant to imply that a peak cream DJ would look like an odd cream sport coat paired with formal shirt and trousers. It was more that, technically, there are no differentiations (besides, arguably, the single button) between the two, unlike a tuxedo jacket, which has silk facings, for example.

My personal favorite for an ivory DJ is a 4x1 DB with shawl lapel, specifically to avoid the problem you mention.

Agreed^

 

I made very specific, personal choices about my dinner jacket, but largely that has to do with my wardrobe. I already have a peak lapel black tuxedo and a midnight shawl lapel tuxedo. As this is for my wedding reception, a private event at which I am the host, I took some liberties...

The wedding is during the day, so I will be wearing a suit. The cocktail party/ reception that evening will begin around 7. I will be wearing a black bow tie and matching cummerbund with the dinner jacket.

 

And its cream, not white.
