In that case, yes 12, or 13 is too big.

Yup, thanks for the suggestion. 9.5 is what I was thinking of shooting for, but  9 may be just enough. These look massive because I'm a quite short dude at 5'7", and the pose somewhat makes them look even wider. Since I asked for extended shoulders on this jacket I wanted the lapels to be wider as well - but clearly went overboard, which is worsened by the messed up measurement... 

 

I measured them like this (and so does my tailor):

 

 

 

Next commission will come with 10.5cm lapels, but that's because they are peak lapels (seersucker DB).

The outcome of my French blue suit and tie conundrum here is the outcome. Quite happy.

On the burgundy train and DTO'ing Rdiaz's and Stitchy's shirt/tie combo today. Will post a full fit pic when time permits. Navy blazer, light grey flannels and burgundy derbies are the other details.

Seen: Kamakura shirt, Henry Carter Burgundy Grenadine

Sounds good. I'm sure a man of your taste did not get one of those striped seersucker fabrics, you went with a solid navy seersucker like below:

A man of my what? confused.gif

 

Hmmm, I can't see the pic, but I really wish there was a solid seersucker in the books he showed me - would have picked it in a second. If I could wear linen I'd even have picked solid blue over any seersucker. But I'm afraid I had to choose between blue and white or pink and white stripes, and seersucker is the only fabric I can tolerate at 30ºC and above, so... shog[1].gif

 

Still trying to get my tailor to acquire some more summer books. He's got pretty much every fall/winter H&S book available, but only a few spring/summer ones.

 

Anyways, If I can pull the stripes off half as well as Will does, I'll be very happy tounge.gif
