OK, It is time now to talk about suiting styles that is less common but have much more flair. I think this thread will be out of style soon since even BR is stealing some of these ideas but I will try anyways. I know many on this board love the SB with peak lapel suit. I am one of those too. With my conservative suiting almost complete, I think I am about to commission a more stylish suit apart from the high gorge notch lapel that forms the staple for suiting. My thoughts on creating a peak lapel SB suit requires the following to look right in my eyes: 1) relatively high gorge but closer to the high part 2) 2 button 3) side vents 4) hacking pockets 5) breast pocket totally parallel to the ground, slightly covered by lapel 6) average waist supression but along the lines of more just a tad above the natural waist 7) flared skirt where bottom button is not covered at all when worn.(Is there a more techincal term for this) but skirt is close to body 8) gently sloping shoulders extended by 1/8" to 1/4" over natural shoulders. Please remark on my points, pointing out flaws if necessary, more suggestions, etc.... What are your thoughts on your concept suits that are within stylish range and not fashion?
