After a successful first commission from Will Field, I've decided the second will be a single breasted, single button, peak lapel suit in a solid medium grey Lesser Superfine Tropical 8 oz. I'm on the fence about both regular flap vs hacking pockets, but probably going to include a ticket pocket..
Where I could use some advice is with regard to the the belly on the lapel and the button point. I've read through the previous discussions on SF on the subject, and there seems to be a consensus that a slightly lowered button point lengthens the lapels and looks better. Poking around on the web, there seems to be quite a bit of variation on this point, though.
I could also use some input on how much belly the lapels should have. I'm looking for a fairly classic and timeless look, and there seems to be a middle ground between little to no belly (which can look a little meek) and too much (which looks like a refugee from Studio 54).
Inspiration for this project comes from Huntsman,
...and of course, the inimitable Spoo.
This Paul Smith strikes me as having too high a button point but a nice subtle shape to the lapels, although they might be a touch narrow.
Advice and examples would be greatly appreciated (especially from RSS, who based on reading previous threads seems to have a stable full of bespoke SB peak lapel suits).
