Has anybody ever seen a 3 roll 2.5 with peaked lapels? How do you think that would look?
(IIRC) Tom Ford does that a lot. And it appears more than I could count in the new series 'Suits'.
I personally don't like that look at all.
I like 3 rolled 2.5 and I love peak lapels, but i don't really care for the two together.
He does 3 roll 2, not 3 roll 2.5. At least from what I have seen.
If you don't like peak lapels you're obviously not going to like the look, but for the people who do like it I think it could be interesting.
This is definitely 3 roll 2, but more or less the same idea. I think it can look rakish if done correctly. But like this dude does, I think it's best if it's not the most sensational part of the look. Most people would be so taken aback by the slippers they wouldn't even notice the subtly of the roll. I think that makes it cooler.

In my mind a 3 roll 2.5 is a casual touch, and peak lapels are dressy, so in my mind the two concepts don't play well together.
Would you mind posting a picture of the completed project? Sounds interesting.
IIRC SpooPoker(?) had a 3r2 with a peak lapel, and I think even patch pockets. I remember seeing it and feeling a little nauseas
Suitsupply's Washington fit - judge for yourself.
I like peak lapels, and I like 3 roll 2/2.5, but not those two combined .
nope. I remember seeing a light brown one... I thought it was you, or maybe you just posted it. I feel like it might have been in the non-sartorialist pics thread.
