    With your frame IMO you should try either a 3/2roll SC or a 2 button with the top button positioned higher. Also, its a little hard to see but maybe losing an inch off the total length of the jacket would look good too.

    From the front the shoulders seem to fit ok but the back view is a different story, there looks to be a little extra space up there. This also seems to be the case with the upper back (shoulder blades area). +1 regarding the previous comment about the converging windowpane pattern below the middle button. Overall it seems as though it is just a bit too big.

    Could not disagree more. If anything, a slight frame demands a wider lapel.

    I totally agree, I was scared to say anything when I saw the jacket for the first time, the lapels looked ridiculous, however, they look fine when he wears it.

    The pockets look huge though!

    As for space in the back, I think he's just standing in a funny way.

    Looks like something one would expect from Steed... Agree that the lapels look great and suit you very well

    Yes the suit looks great indeed. The lapels are perfect, I believe anything thinner would make him look wide-hipped...

    I can only assume you mean wider relative to shoulder width, rather than wider in absolute terms?

    I think it's an RLP Garrison -- could be wrong
