If they didn’t discontinue the wide lapel Madison DB,more than likely they would’ve sold out. I think that’s what made suitsupply what they were,going against the norm.

Does anyone here have a comparison photo of the wide and normal MTM notch lapels available? I ordered my first MTM suit and went with the normal width lapels (as per recommendation from the salesman) and thought that they look a little "meh". They could be a bit wider, although I'm scared that the wide option will be too wide, as I'm pretty slim. Going to get my second MTM suit soon, so I'm a bit contemplated...

Also, is it possible to choose that just the top (notch) of the lapels get wider? Of course, the lapels will get wider generally, but if it's possible to get the rest a little bit on the smaller side. I'm not a big fan of the lapels completely (more or less) covering the breast pocket.

No comparison but here’s a pic of the wide notch with 2,5 buttoning.

Also: No you can’t customise the lapel, only choose normal or wide.

Speaking of Madison fit... I still have my two Madison DB suits in 38R that I haven't sold. Easy to forget about stuff that goes deep into the closet and disappears...

You selling?
I am! Both 38R. One is the blue stripe linen/cotton/silk mix (I think) and the other is a pima/supima cotton in light grey. First one has been worn half a dozen times, only the pants were hemmed (30" inseam with a 1.5" cuff) and the second one is BNWT.

Mentally getting ready for the outlet which is about a month away but probably won’t purchase anything — more like wimdow-shop. I have enough of everything to last for years, I just can’t stay away from window shopping! Also, The Supplier has an outlet every 2 weeks so it’s like Black Friday/Cyber Monday year round!

If shipping from canada to the us wasn't so expensive, I might would still do that blue stripe. But alas.


Speaking of @TheSupplier and his shop, that green Lazio looks fire. If it is still around on Friday when I get payed, I am going to have to pick it up.
