So we have the notch and the peaked, but are there other types of lapels out there? I read that Nixon liked frog-mouth lapels, but I don't know what the hell those are and I can't seem to find any good pictures of them.

It's "fishmouth". there's also Parisian, Tautz, M (rare these days), and semi-peak.

there was once a huuge discussion about the fish mouth lapel on AAAC. Not a huge fan of it.

Is the Thierry Mugler lapel just the "Thierry Mugler lapel" or is there another name? Or is it fishmouth, Parisian, or Tautz?

Antiques Roadshow?

Also, they look like a super duper Tautz collar.

I think it was Harold Reynolds or Marcellus Wiley (or both) who used to wear awful lapels. Sometimes three or more button holes on one, I remember once there was a jacket shaped like a notch lapel but no notches, there wer some other awful ones, but I can't think of them.
