Dorothy Sayers used to refer to such a look as "unfortunate." But I don't think it is actually wrong in a logical way.

Certainly. I wore a buff double breasted odd vest and a single breasted navy suit for my wedding a month ago so it has to be correct!

Okay because that is my reason to buy one.

Okay, but i'm thinking of the same way like one in light blue under. Just wearing it for normal days no special reasons.

Isn't this a tailor of Anderson & Sheppard?

I think I like those lapels, but I wonder how they'll look on a business suit, and if it's too ostentatious for somebody not in tailoring, say in law. Might attract a lot of attention, but I don't know. I'm tempted to try those lapels.

You are kidding me right? A classic suit should attracts good comments?

I don't like attention and I'm content eking out a meager living that's enough for me to buy my suits. 'bout it. biggrin.gif

Hard not to stand out in a well-made DB. Maybe somber, conservative colors, such as charcoal, may attenuate the effect.

Part reposting a question already asked in the tailors thread, but I having this issue really getting on my nerves.

 

I have DB Suit A and DB Suit B, both made at a local MTO shop. I'm starting to feel that I made a bad misstake by lowering the button stance on Suit B.

It's 2cm lower then Suit A, top working button sits right at my bellybutton. Also don't like how the top two buttons have moved down from the widest part of my chest.

 

Personally I like A more, as long as B does not look completely silly, I'm willing to live with it. Does it?

 

 

Suit A: 

 

 

 

 

Suit B:

There is a bit of 'drama' in those A&S lapels, part of the look which can be a bit much for some. They maybe willing to tame them a bit, Go in and have a chat, air your concerns and see how flexible they are willing to be.

 

Also consider, a more middle of the road style like Poole for example.

I find those A&S lapels a bit much but I don't think they are standard issue for them.
post #1124 of 1488

All my A&S suits have lapels as shown in the navy suit below - I didn't ask for a special design, so I imagine this is their default. Still curvier and 'swoop-ier' than their SR competitors:

Hi - sorry if this isn't the right place to ask. I'm new to this forum but as it's to do with the Double-Breasted style, I thought I'd get a more accurate response to my question here.

 

I'm currently having my tailor make a black double-breasted (6 buttons) suit and have the first fitting some time this week. I have accepted his suggestion of a button hole on each lapel and wondered what other people thought of this? The suit will become my standard suit for day-time events where one is needed (as I'm slowly replacing my wardrobe with bespoke), so wondered if having a button hole on each side is compromising on formality?
