Lapels too skinny for body type?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone,

 

I'm fairly new to dressing well and have really took in alot of great knowledge from fellow members here. I recently bought my 2nd sport coat in khaki for summer. I bought a J crew ludlow and got it for a great deal. I know a slim fit was what I wanted but I didn't research lapel width too much and didn't know that J crew had one of the skinniest ones. I'm 5'11 180lb athletic build 40 chest. Here is a picture of the suit do you think it is proportional or too skinny for my build?

It's pretty simple. Do you feel good when you wear it? Then don't worry about it. Styleforum members and "the real world" are not on the same page with such things. You must learn to make your own decisions sometimes based on your own lifestyle, etc.

 

I happen to like larger lapels. But If we met in the street, I probably wouldn't even notice yours are narrow.

It looks decent to me. The sleeves look a little too long but thats a pretty easy fix.

This == truth.

It's tough to critique the fit in that "holding up camera" pose, but the lapels look fine. The sleeves are obviously at least an inch too long.

Looks good, suits the style of the jacket.  Agree with those who say the sleeves could be taken up slightly.
