    Could never do that - just think notch lapel SB DJs look wrong

    In any case too late - the DB shawl 4x1 has been cut and is being made up for a first fitting in two weeks

    Just a quick note for those eagle-eyed of you that may have noticed but we have put a neck cut in on the Dinner Jacket as well as the Donegal. I just happened to be a bit hasty with taking the photo and did so before we marked the neck cut.

    Also regarding the Notch-Lapel on a DJ, I much prefer the Shawl Collar or Peak Lapel. The Notch-Lapel is a bit too "Hollywood" for me and reminds me of more hire-wear or OTR.

    Best,

    Matthew

    I would go with the 1B SB. Single vent would be a hipper look. Go a inch and a half shorter in the coat length. Piped pockets with flaps. Pipe pockets in grossgrain. Flaps will let you wear it two ways, with or without. Want to wear it piped, tuck in flaps and press properly. This will add versatility. Sleeve buttons = 2 functional covered grossgrain. Maybe go a little bigger than 24L.
