Ideas for my new MTM Suit - Page 3

My last suit I did a heathered blue wide peak lapel with patch side and breast pockets (I know I know) and it came out very nice. It doesnt necessarily have to be CBD but I dont want it to be too fashion GQ-ed with 1.5 inch lapels if you get my drift. Any ideas would be appreciated.
EDIT: Looking for suggestions on styling (which would work together with a certain fabric). For example,
Navy chalkstripe, 3 roll 2, wide peak lapels, ticket pocket, slanted etc. Please post pictures to for reference! Thanks icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Get a grey or blue /gray nailhead or birdseye worsted. Three piece if you wish.
Stay away from patch pockets- too casual- I also hate them.
I have such a suit from Chipp (Winston Tailors) No longer fits,
but I still keep it.

Some Savile Row examples:

Looking for pictures of a 3 piece, 3 roll 2, high notch with wider lapels (something along the lines of Tom Ford but I cant seem to find any good pictures)

It will depend on where you are as I don't think there really is what you call "year round" suits but flannels would be good.

I would go with notch lapel, 3-roll-2, slanted, flapped pockets and a ticket pocket. Would also look great as a three-piece

 

IMO this looks fantastic!

Im in the Northeast, and by year round I meant tropical fabrics

If you have that many suits year-round suits already, get something for a specific season. Tan cotton (lower patch), grey or brown donegal 3-piece, something in linen.

Don't do slanted/hacking pockets.

Brown chalkstripe can be cool too:

Lapels are too skinny though.

I love the look, except agree about the skinny lapels
