Are these lapels too wide?

Its a Brioni 2 button Nomentano, unvented. I can't decide whether the lapels look too wide or otherwise dated. What do you guys think?

Thanks

Looks pretty standard to me, not wide, not narrow. If I had to say one or the other, I would call them slightly narrow rather than slightly wide.

Wow - talk about quick responses. Thanks, I guess I was just a bit paranoid about the somewhat pricey purchase that has not yet arrived.

No the lapel width is fine. Now, the fact that it's unvented...

I concur, the lapels are fine.

Now as to being unvented.

Was this suit originally dual vented, and you had the vents sewn?

I did not think Brioni currenty makes non vented suits, unless you alter a dual vent to a ventless!

Anyone with more knowledge than me?
