Any other makers doing the really wide Benigno Rotella lapel?

post #1 of 6

I'm in love with the Benigno Rotella wide lapels. Are any other, easier to find labels doing a look like this?

Mercifully not.

We seem to have a lot of newbies this evening asking silly questions.

Along with the usual senior member that consistently provides unhelpful responses. Didn't your momma teach you about the "Golden Rule", GBR?

Eric, I don't know of any RTW makers that offer lapels quite that wide. Those things are massive!

I had a jacket in tan gabardine with notch lapels almost as wide.
But it was in the late 70s and made by the immortal Roland Melendandri*

Doesn't Suit Supply have one or two models that have disproportionately wide lapels? I'm not sure if they're as outsized as those (never seen them in person), but that might be a more easily attainable source if one was looking for such a thing. I think it looks ridiculous, but given the responses from others I get by wearing balmoral boots and pocket squares, perhaps I should mind the lovely glass walls of my house.

Thanks, I'll take a look at Suit Supply -- haven't in awhile.

 

Actually after posting, I saw an Eidos model that is not as exagerated but def. has a wider lapel. I'm not even sure  I would want one quite as wide as the Rotella, but I like the idea of a wider lapel after all the mass market "skinny"stuff around these days.
