    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.

    3.5" is too wide for me, so anything even wider than that is certainly out of the question.
