    I considered commissioning a jacket with a little belly on the notch lapels, but thought the better of it when I couldn't even picture what that would look like. Anyone own something like this? Pictures?

    Thanks Andre. That looks more normal than I would have thought and probably even more discreet in person.

    What's "belly"?

    EDIT: Never mind, figured it out.

    Straight is so boring. Everybody does it toooooo oftennnnn.

    The bottom half, or three, quarters looks better with a belly. But I like the top to be straight or near straight.

    I'm not feeling this at all. The coat looks good otherwise, but that lapel is not doing anything for the jacket.
