    Don't worry about this price...if you have a suit like this...you don't need to worry about money. People will assume you are a celebrity and give you everything for free for the remainder of your life.

    Navy wide Fox Flannel had the most votes with 4.
    If you join @mypants , we would have 5. (Also, if the people who wanted grey joined, we might have enough).

    Pretty sure we were ambivalent on notch vs peak

    My view is, yes, peak makes it more dandified and retro. But already that cloth is dandy and retro enough that the notch is not going to make it just a normal looking suit. And the peak looks fantastic imho.

    Don't peaked lapels on a single-breasted suit really call for one button, though? I feel like a notch lapel would contribute to making it seem less dandy-ish and costumey.

    Lol. I knew that was coming, but I think I have kopped enough to earn a littleway in asserting my opinion here. :(

    Also, I dont want to see the good folks here screwing up their GMTO.

    As well, if the cut off date for this was years end, I miiiiiiiiight be able to do it, but no promises.

    But seriously, if it gets done, and I were in, and the decision was notch, I would drop out.

    I think it would look smashing in regular notch lapels. The Formosa lapels have enough va-va-voom to make that cloth sing

    It would look smashing with no lapels. Hell, it would look smashing just draping 3 yards of the fabric around your body, but I think it will hit max levels of amazeballs, with peak lapels.

    But, Im out so I have no say, and it will be awesome regardless, so have it gents, notch or not.

    Bought these last year. Finally cold enough to wear them.
    I'm not sure if the straps serve any function, it's not like their adjustable [​IMG]
