    I think it looks awesome, and I don't usually even like chalk-stripe.

    And I have laugh at people who are so self-conscious that they think anyone would notice or care if they wore peak instead of notch lapels...

    i dont get this, this is like asking if you can wear socks with shoes? Why wouldnt you be able too. I feel this is more of an anouncement you just got one then can you wear it.

    I'd agree. About the only thing most people will notice is the color of the suit unless there is something really odd intended to bring attention. I've been wearing a peak lapel suit in a regular rotation and, while I've had people discuss the color ("sand") no one's ever mentioned anything about the lapel. People will notice pockets, if its highly unusual and you wear a square or something to attract attention.

    Just to close the loop, it had been awhile now and I have worn my Tom Ford suit to work many times without any negative commentary. I have actually received quite a few compliments from folks, including on the fit. After the experience, I tend to agree with the folks that say it is all about the fit and the color and as long as you wear it with confidence, you can pull it off.

    I will say that my Tom Ford experience has been mixed. I was always a previous fan of the soft shoulder, Isaia, style suits, but since wearing the Tom Ford and another RLBL, there is something more striking about the more structured shoulder. That said, I find it to be less comfortable and less "wearable" than the more relaxed style.

    I guess that means I will just have to go back and forth in my closet...

    Spoo rocks TF like a boss.

    Be loud—heads turn when I take my jacket off and bright purple braces are revealed underneath. Lock and load, before your dead.
