    No, this isn't that gorgekko. I'm his brother...umm...Dave.

    I need your advice. I'm not terribly interested buying this suit but the lapels on this intrigue me. Are they too wide?

    I'd say they're not, but I'm a bit more partial to a wider lapel than others here.

    they strike me as being a bit wide, you might have to be a bit broad to swing it.

    The curve of the lapel combines with the width to make it look a bit dated. Not terrible, but noticeable if you're looking for that type of thing.

    Now that you're here, you should stick around, Gorgekko's brother.

    Yeah, I agree, it does look a bit dated. I was just a little interested because it would have been nice to add something different to the wardrobe...not a fan of Chaps though.

    Oh, gorgekko would be mad if he knew I was using his account after his unceremonious departure.

    I imagine 48L would qualify as 'a bit broad.' Would still look quite dated, like you should be off inventing new steel alloys, or something.
