Any other makers doing the really wide Benigno Rotella lapel?

    I'm in love with the Benigno Rotella wide lapels. Are any other, easier to find labels doing a look like this?

    Mercifully not.

    We seem to have a lot of newbies this evening asking silly questions.

    Along with the usual senior member that consistently provides unhelpful responses. Didn't your momma teach you about the "Golden Rule", GBR?

    Eric, I don't know of any RTW makers that offer lapels quite that wide. Those things are massive!

    Doesn't Suit Supply have one or two models that have disproportionately wide lapels? I'm not sure if they're as outsized as those (never seen them in person), but that might be a more easily attainable source if one was looking for such a thing. I think it looks ridiculous, but given the responses from others I get by wearing balmoral boots and pocket squares, perhaps I should mind the lovely glass walls of my house.

    Thanks, I'll take a look at Suit Supply -- haven't in awhile.

    Actually after posting, I saw an Eidos model that is not as exagerated but def. has a wider lapel. I'm not even sure I would want one quite as wide as the Rotella, but I like the idea of a wider lapel after all the mass market "skinny"stuff around these days.
