At first glance, they do look a little wide. But I have a question before I commit to an opinion. Is that the type of shirt you are planning to wear with that jacket? Then I'd say definitely too wide.In need of some advice from a custom order I just got:
It's the navy wool/silk/linen from piacenza fabric and I got the wide lapel half lined havana in an attempt to duplicate the old hudson fit:

However, I simply didn't realize the lapels would be so WIDE. they are 4.75" wide. does this look ridic on me? I'm 5-6 for reference. Should I just return it? It otherwise fits great
For further reference, this is my best fitting sportcoat (a silk/linen from E Thomas in the Hudson). Note how perfect the lapel width is:
For further reference, I was avoiding the Havana because I think the lapel is a tad too skinny and the fit isn't the best on me

so yeah my main issue is with the wide lapels on the custom....is it too cartoony for me?
Otherwise, can you share a photo with that type of shirt? It would be helpful to see the whole ensemble. Because perhaps with a different shirt and, to a lesser extent, trouser combination this might look great on you.
