Interesting. What options does KW have for lapel size?

If I recall, I believe the 3 are 2.75" (sacrilege on here haha), 3.5", and 4.25"

That's really unfortunate because 0.75'' is a large difference.

17.8 shoulder (I need it to be a bit wider I think. 17.9), 4.25 lapels. My sweet spot is 3.75, but KW doesn't have that option, so I went big (having a number of 3.5's already)


Doesn't look too wide to me. I've got a peak lapel jacket that's about 4 inches (my shoulders are about the same as yours) that I think is perhaps a bit bold relative to the current trends, but still within the realm of "appropriate in all places". There, now you can sleep easy tonight: I know you were worried some stranger on the internet wouldn't approve.

I don't think I agree. 4.25" seems similarly huge to me, without any context for how it looks. Claghorn's shoulders are not what I would consider massive (I believe at last check my shoulders are about 18.75" or so), but the 4.25" lapels look "right" on him. If you held a gun to my head and told me to guess the lapel size, I definitely would have said 3.5".

 

Obviously it is somewhat relative though. If one's shoulders are significantly narrower, then 4.25 might be a step too far.

What I meant was having those three options only (each is 0.75'' difference) is unfortunate. Some people would like 3.75'' and 4''. There are a lot of lapel sizes that fall within that 0.75''.

 

I like the lapels on Claghorn's jacket. However, I know some would like a tad bit smaller (such as Claghorn, who likes a 3.75'' lapel).

I'm happy with some of mine with 3in. Happiest at 3.75. Happy 4.25. Shape is probably also a factor. As is gorge height. And head size and neck size.

Good point in regards to the shape of a lapel, beyond just how wide it is at the widest point. My biggest lapels are "only" 4 inches, but they have a nice belly to them, that makes them both seem a bit bigger and also more interesting. I didn't ask for that, so it was a pleasant surprise, but it's something I will consider on future jacket orders; I don't like it as much on a notch lapel for some reason, though perhaps I have just not seen one done well.

It's fuzzy. It's not clear. I edited the pic a little. I know it'll get very few thumbs but I thought it was cool enough to share. That's my story and I'm sticking by it.
Also go NINERS!!!

This is how to do a two-tone shirt (not sure of their correct name).

I had one of these shirts but could never make it work. So I admire your skill.

Thank you, Coxie, and the more proper name for today's shirt is "contrast collar", I believe. As the fall season approaches, you'll be seeing more of them on me. As for making them work, one merely needs to be very much behind the times satisfied.gif.

Just bought a new one myself...been binge watching Boardwalk Empire again, mostly for the wardrobe!

You probably already know, but the vast majority of the menswear on that show was made by Martin Greenfield.

You get a sympathy/solidarity thumb from me, Justin.  Life's not always conducive to us appearing in our best light.

I can't help but notice that @Sander (and @Braddock) both have ultra neat shirt "tucks". Even if my shirts fit snug at the waist (not button-pulling snug, but close enough to not have extra fabric), I can't seem to achieve a neat tuck. It always end up in a billowy waistline, and I am unsuccessful at the military tuck.
