    This looks good but not my style though, love the cloth. I'd go for a 3 button version, the top lutton just below the breast pocket and 2.5 inch lapels. Don't like external turn-ups but he carries the look well.

    I like the nipped waist and longer coat.
    I dislike the built up "British" shoulders.
    I'm a natural shoulder guy.

    Yeah it's rather 70s looking. He was into 70s suits a bit so I tried to keep that feel but not make it look too period specific. The trousers have a slight flare, and the coat is longer with slightly wide lapels for his frame. Tinker tailor soldier spy had come out and we were going for that vibe a bit as well. I'm more of a Modernist myself of course and like things like Mohair and late 50s early 60s styling. I think 3 button suits look quite "modern" again now.

    What I like about this though is exactly that he "carries the look well". It looks quite normal for him to wear this which is quite nice to see because he's a photographer whos all about low v necks, cut off shorts and flip flops.

    Bryan Ferrys lapels are awesome aren't they?
