CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19
The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.
If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Bradley Cooper is definitely 3.5ish. No way it's smaller than that. I think Shia is 3.5 as well, but it looks bigger due to smaller jacket size (Cooper is 4 inches taller.)
For reference, this is a 3" lapel on a model who's probably around the same height as Cooper.
It's hard to say because it depends on the jacket size. I just measured about 5 jackets of different sizes. Most have 3.5" lapels, but proportionally, they look different depending on the size.
If this is any help, I took this photo for fit feedback. (Ignore the terrible shirt fit, was just the first thing I grabbed.)
This is a 52R jacket (Euro, so ~ 41R US sizing). It has 9cm/3.5" lapels.
I think it's possible that it's 3.75", based solely on visual estimate, but that doesn't mean 3.75" will look the same on you if you're a different size than he is.
It's proportional that way. It's like... a normal sized hat looks tiny on Shaq. Shia is not, afaik, a very big guy, so the opposite holds. 3.5" is pretty standard. In any case, I would definitely listen to @David Reeves , who is a tailor by trade and owns a company that specializes in suiting.Ah it would appear then the smaller chest you have the larger it would look...
It's either 3.5 or 3 3/4". judging by him it's 3.5 (if he's a 36) which is getting a bit wide these days for that size. This lapel has a half notch as well which makes it look more expressive.
A 37 is not a very large size.I'm in between at a 37. Should I go 3.5 or 3.75 to replicate? @la guy 3.5 is standard? I assume Shia is fairly normal or average and his lapels look wider than anything ive seen here
A 37 is not a very large size.
I just looked up Shia's size, and apparently, is is 5'9" and about 155 lbs. That would put him at about a size 38. For context, I am 5'11", and when I weighed 155 lbs, I wore a size 38.
It seems pretty clear that you want large lapels. I would just go for it. 3.5 is standard for "normal" wide lapels, but if you want to be sure to get a larger lapel, go for the 3.75" and do a half notch, as recommended by @David Reeves
. Are you working with a tailor, or are you doing this with a MTM program where you can't get great advice? If you are doing this with a tailor, go ahead and bring the picture in, and a good tailor will be able to cut a jacket so that you can get a similar look.
It's not a term I typically hear, but if you get a very slim lapeled suit, you'll often see a very small notch that has a very sharp horizontal "V". I've heard tailors refer to this as a "fishmouth" lapel because of the appearance. I would guess that the half notch lapel is somewhere between the nearly symmetrical V that you see on most notched lapel suits, and the fishmouth lapel.I wear a 38 also but going MTM soon through Black Lapel. What do you mean by half notch?
