Down Peak Lapels - Forgotten Style?

I was channel surfing and came across Bargain Hunt on BBC America. The host, David Dickinson, was wearing a tan SB suit with peak lapels that pointed downwards. Here are some examples of the DB version.


I searched the forum and could only find this post from J back in 2006 of a Chester Barrie coat with similar peak lapels.

Is anyone familiar with this style? Was it a bespoke option?

Chorse is absolutely correct here.
There was an Oxxford coat or jacket in a thread on this forum that had those same features. Ugly as sin.

The guy you quoted in your pics has got horrible taste. He wears the most ghastly glasses I have seen on television, worse than Dame Edna.

Those are not peak lapels pointed downward. If you will notice the jackets have a notch lapel shape and it is the collar that is pointed.
