It's making the same decision of getting a tuxedo with shawl or peak. They have their own vibe.That's interesting to read....I'd pictured it as being something I would wear mostly with casual suits or odd jacket and trousers, but it sounds like you found it to be even more casual in practice?
Thanks! Any details you would suggest? I'm off to Google all the images of ones I can find, but I'm just curious what your perspective would be having made a few of them.
You lose the opportunity to cross the lapels over like you do with an Ulster to give more protection from wind. You can cross them over but the design of a shawl narrows towards the neck.
Think the look is optimized on a taller frame. Shawls look better the longer they are.
