    I think you are tall enough to do it. I have seen a few Cucinelli's that look very good in a peak 3-2. Go for it.

    I don't hate the idea, but the size of lapels keeps forcing my mind's eye to pull the one half of the jacket over the other into a d/b configuration.

    I guess it would more congruous to me as a one-button peak a la Huntsman.

    I take more offense to the patch pocket/peak combo than the 3/2 peak combo.

    I think the key is to have a patch breast pocket with patch side pockets. A normal breast pocket with side patch pockets looks like a mistake to me and gives a jacket a kind of identity crisis.

    not a fan. plus the patch pockets and fabric also add to the mix and the whole thing looks confusing to me.

    nah, I don't get it. The third button adds nothing Spoo. The lapel is rolled so hard it serves no functional purpose and it's a distraction from the beautiful peaks.


    what kind of crappy designer made that thing ;-)

    Check out Jason Marhsall, the Jazz musician. He posts here and on Ask Andy and his homepage has some interesting photos of him. I believe he's worked though from a 3 button down to a one button with peak lapels.

    I do like the idea of the peak lapel sport coat and can see it in a more casual suit, ideally in a midnight navy to be worn at night. It's generally outside of the scope of classic men's wear though..

    i just bought a 3/2, split-peak. wore it for the first time tonight. love it. i think if the button stance is low enough the it can work quite well. as for patch pockets with peak lapels i don't mind it at all:

    I agree with you - however it does not bother me so much. Just showing Rob a pic since he asked for one. You know what crap designer made this [​IMG]

    Not a fan. If you go ahead though, make sure to wear shoes similar to the guy in the pic.
