    Can anyone ID the suite Gosling is wearing? It's got some ridiculously beautiful lapel seams, swelled edges, ticket pocket (no Milanese button hole, so maybe not a Tom Ford). Obvious roped shoulders. It looks very similar to something Tom Ford would cut, but if it had a Milanese lapel hole it would show up very dark, and Gosling's is not dark.

    Any brand aside from TF and Gucci with those generously sized notch lapels? I've seen Suitsupply's ridiculously large lapels from two or three years ago - those are too big.

    That was the San Diego, which didn't last long and was pretty comical. However, Suitsupply's Hudson and Lazio have wider lapels which look good. Some Charles Tyrwhitt suits have good sized notch lapels too, 4 inches wide from memory.

    Other than that, thrifting and eBay can turn up some wonderful stuff if you're willing to look about. There was a Polo Ralph Lauren "Garrison" cut which had awesome 70s style wide notch lapels, but they haven't made it in some time - worth looking out for in the classifieds and on eBay.

    Corneliani (the maker of the Garrison cut) makes wide lapel jackets/suits, but they're all drop 9. Not sure about your cut.

    Tom Ford's 46R (US 36R) O'Connor fit is perfect for me. That's a slim drop 7.
