Blackadder Goes Forth - Lord Flashheart from "Private Plane".
I've only started wearing a PS regularly reasonably recently, and I notice that the breast pocket on my PJ suit is covered by the lapel to some degree, as opposed to Don Draper as shown here where the entire pocket and therefore PS is exposed:

Is this something you can request from the maker? What do you all think of this look v. the PJ look where it's somewhat hidden? I didn't even go with the wide lapels option on my PJ - I imagine even more would be covered if I had?
Don's lapels are very narrow there, hence there is plenty of room to display a pocket square.
I think that it depends not only upon the lapel width, but also upon the placement of the pocket.
I've got suits/jackets from several makers - Deer Style, Herringbone and Borrelli amongst them - where the pocket square is covered up just a little bit by the edge of the lapel. However, I haven't noticed the same thing happen with the RL Polo and RL Purple Label suits or my Brooks Brothers jackets, even though their lapels are also fairly wide, and so the shape of the lapels and/or the breast pocket placement must be a little different.
Personally speaking, I don't like the narrower lapels on the suit that Don Draper is wearing in the above photo, but that's just me.
