Medium to dark, better yet charcoal for FW or a medium grey for SS

It's a sleeker look to forego the belt. That said, I usually wear one because I like my belts!post #17482 of 334519/16/12 at 2:30ampost #17483 of 334519/16/12 at 6:44ampost #17484 of 334519/16/12 at 7:06ampost #17485 of 334519/16/12 at 7:08ampost #17486 of 334519/16/12 at 9:26am
I am considering having a new suit made, I am set on a three piece (with no lapels on the vest), however as all of my current suits are notch lapels, I was hoping to make the three-piece with a peak lapel. My issue is as an individual of smaller stature I have made all my current suits with narrow lapels (regular sized lapels look unusually large on me), approx. 2.25".
My question is, has anyone seen narrow peak lapels on a suit? And if so, I would appreciate someone positing some pics so that I can determine whether it would look odd on a suit.
Thanks SF brethren!

Check TM Lewin out. I'm very happy with their suits. They're half canvased. From their current selection I would recommend the styles "Stephenson" and "Earlham". The cloth have a great feel. I purchased the Portobello and Brunel models also but didn't like the cloth as much.
I have a question of my own.
I intend to buy a overcoat and use a suit/Sport coat under. If the shoulder width (shoulder seam to shoulder seam) on my suits/SCs is 17,5-18,5", what should the shoulder width be on the overcoat?
Same thing goes for chest width, which is 19-20,5" on my suits/SCs. What should the chest width on the overcoat be?
I'm, of course speaking in general and am aware of that I wont get a exact scientific answer. I just need some rule of thumb to know what to search for at the Internet.
Thanks in advance.post #17489 of 334519/16/12 at 4:20pmpost #17490 of 334519/16/12 at 4:22pmQuote:
Definitely medium gray is a lot more versatile than charcoal but charcoal does have its place (with light-colored shirts).
