I would wear it in a heartbeat. I need to size down my clothing collection before buying anything new, Im on strict wife's orders of no buying until I sell. But those ties will be among the purchases I am guaranteed to make.
My Zegna tux has pretty freaking large lapels (5" at the largest point). My tailor commented that it looked like I was flying away. I love it, since I'm tired of seeing skinny lapels everywhere. I should be good with it for a while. At least the fashion brands have stayed away from wide lapels so far. I say we have a good 2-4 years until we see wide lapels at H&M.
Still, I think TF lapels must be around 7-8 inches... nuts.
But, to answer your question... I'd probably wear it. I'm more worried about the shoulders.
I forgot about the wide lapels.. it seems they go down very well and i personally like them so wouldn't question their usage!
The ties though.. at 5" wide are a bit much
lol I can't read. How did I misread Ties for Lapels? Definitely can't pull off 5" ties. I own a 4" TF tie and I find myself on the brim of not being able to pull it off.
Have you seen the 5.5-6" ones? They are amazing.
Damn..this means I can take my vintage Schiaparelli ties out of storage! Happy Day!
the trend will swing back that way eventually
3.5" is too wide for me, so anything even wider than that is certainly out of the question.
How come no pics? Making me angry.
I also wanna turn this into a picture thread, i'll change the title see if that helps
You don't want to see them.
