To complicate matters, my last few commissions from Steven Hitchcock have been single breasted, single button with notch lapels and I love the way they turned out. I’m absolutely sold on single button, at least in his hands.

Divij @ Divij Bespoke convinced me to try single button as well and I'm sold as well for formal suits.

Single button peak lapel seems super tuxedo like to me but I understand the principle behind it - a longer lapel line and lower buttoning point.

I’ll share some photos once the fitting is ready and decide then

slanted pocket too I assume?, it's a very sharp English look
Yes! I saw him wearing a jacket in that configuration and it was very flattering on him. He recommended it and I went with it.

It is sharp… but not as much as a suit from someone like Michael Browne (whose works looks amazing but I don’t think I could pull off.)

look up some older paul stuart phineas cole look book, button point and lapel width are very "2010" but you got the idea, they definitely won't look tuxedo

Here's a picture of mine. In my mind, it doesn't look like a tuxedo.

Definitely peak on SB suits. So many makers are doing it well - Tom Ford, RLPL, Phineas, etc...
for me, sbpl is better on English tailoring and Milanese / Roman.

I’ve never been into sbpl for Florence or Neapolitan with the obvious exception being tuxedos
