Angle of peak lapels

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
What are the opinions of the members on the angle of the seam where the lapel meets the collar on a peak lapel?  Should the imaginary line which continues from the seam cross at the shoulder seam, above or below?  I've seen all three stances, but I think very slightly above the shoulder looks best. I think the same logic would apply to a notched lapel, except one would consider the line bisecting the notch. I've noticed that military jackets tend to have the angle set closer to parallel to the floor. (Need to stop watching JAG.)

I'd go for a notch that points right at the top of the sleevehead.
