When is it suitable to wear a peak lapel suit?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I work in a high end estate agency and wondering if it would be suitable to wear a peak lapel suit?

I would steer away from them for conservative job interviews. Other than that, you should be fine - this assumes that the suit does not feature very wide or very narrow lapels.

Assuming that they are not outrageous they will be fine in most circumstances. You may prefer to avoid interviews but I would worry about even that - I have given men jobs who wear such suits - because they were best for the job, that is , after all, the purpose of an interview.

1. 100 percent of the time that you are wearing a double-breasted suit.
2. 25 percent of the time that you are wearing a single-breasted suit (notch lapel other 75 percent)
3. 50 percent of the time that you are wearing a dinner jacket (shawl lapel other 50 percent).

When it fits perfectly ad when it is of an understated cloth.

There is a trend towards fashion suits using peak lapels and unless you suit fits you like a glove then it may come off as cheap.

The colour/pattern question is more a consideration of the field. A chalk-stripe or bold PoW is attention-grabbing enough, combining it with an unusual cut will make it very distinctive.

Other than those considerations, go ahead.

Thanks for the help! Do you think one or two button jackets are best?

Absolutely two button. One button is typically reserved for dinner jackets.
