    The gorge height in particular. Not because it is trendy, but because it looks bad.

    I think if he worked on his pocket square execution, he'd be doing very well.

    ^^ is the gorge the area above the notch? too high meaning at shoulder level rather than below? Thanks for educating a noob...

    The gorge is the seam between the collar and the lapel of a jacket. On a notched lapel, it corresponds with the notch height (high gorge equals high notch).

    +1. Foo your critiques are pointed for sure, but incisive and informative without sounding imperious and/or condescending... I appreciate reading them.

    What does it mean when the lapels of a suit jacket do this:

    It means the jacket doesn't fit.

    I think it's been mentioned here many times that critiquing hairstyles is ill-advised not only for the fact that they are partially dictated by nature and whatever you happen to be born with, but also because they are based on very personal aesthetic choices. That's why many choose to crop/obscure them...myself included. You can't actually "see" my hair although that didn't prevent you from making a sarcastic joke at my expense.... particularly when the comparison couldn't be any less accurate. And not only is Michael Richards fairly ugly on the outside, he's a racist prick... and ugly on the inside as well, so yes I find that offensive. However, if your post above is your version of an apology than I accept it.

    Overall, I agree with Foo on everything; excellent critiques. I just want to add that wider jacket sleeves often bunch up more and reveal more cuff than narrower ones. Regardless of the aesthetic, that has been an issue in my wider jackets and I'm considering slimming them down.
    Of course, the main issue would be the way the armhole was cut, but narrower sleeves might help by getting "trapped" by the shirt sleeves, or at least pulling the shirt up a bit, too. Thoughts?

    Obviously. But what about the jacket makes the lapels do that?
