    So the lapel width makes you dislike the silhouette / house style of the suits?

    Am I missing something? I don't see an issue with the lapels - maybe the peaks are a little wide, but peak lapels are supposed to be wide, especially on DBs.

    Over-done on the DB, to my taste. Maybe the shape or the construction more than the width alone.

    Pretty much. The lapels are distracting to me without judging anything else about construction, fit, etc. Obviously with bespoke, the lapels can be changed but the DB's just aren't doing it for me.

    Except for photos #4 and #5 ( blue jackets) the rest of their
    jackets seem a bit "off". Either too skimpy for my taste or with
    rope shoulders, too short, etc. Only #4 and possibly # 5 look descended
    from A&S.

    What is an ideal A&S expatriate silhouette?

    Lapel size on the DB is something that can easily be adjusted. These suits don't really show much style as the individuals have their arms crossed.

    This is the beloved Lovat tweed (and some old Lobb's)with better colour rendition, cut by Steven Hitchcock who now has included the West Coast, San Francisco and LA, to his regular US schedule. :bigstar:
