Any notch lapels look horrible on a DB.

Now I think they look OK on the high buttoned one that Lord Mulberry posted, maybe better than peaked here. However on that 80s Brioni thing I posted ealier, that's another matter.

I've warmed up to notch lapel DB coats. They look distinctly 80s, though, and only work on casual coats, such as the one MikeDT posted.

I have seen and thought about that Phineas Cole jacket before, and it is interesting, but far too extreme for my taste.  I like 6x3 DB jackets, but I think the extra 2 buttons on this make it the equivalent of a 4 button SB.  In addition, the hacking pockets and ticket pocket make the whole thing a mess.  I am just happy that the model is not wearing the hat, because that would make him look even more ridiculous.

Now I will sit back and wait for the 6x3 hate...

I like that.

But I would never wear it.

Even without the grey bowler, it looks ridiculous.

But ridiculous in a faintly admirable way.

Hacking pockets not a problem, but the upper buttons should be moved outwards. Though that would not stop it still looking ridiculous. Just in a different and less bad way than most other ridiculous things.

Phineas Cole is like Ralph Lauren would be if Ralph Lauren was on crack.

I think for Phineas Cole it works - but that is because it is supposed to be uber-dandyish.

Yeah, it does look much better like that.
