Jacket lapels – what to choose?
POSTED ON September 23rd, 2015
For all the decisions that need to be made on style, shape, and fashion when tailoring the ultimate bespoke suit, creating the lapel choice on the suit is often one of the the most difficult decisions to make.
Notched or peaked lapel?
- the notch lapel is the most common lapel. Usually only found on single breasted jackets, this lapel is the most classic of designs and is suited for all occasions. It is also found on sport jackets. The width of the notch is usually from slim to medium.
- the peaked lapel is one of my favorites, this lapel is commonly found on double breasted jackets and is also very popular on the single breasted jacket. It is the best choice for a formal occasion, such as a wedding, and also a great choice for a dinner suit. The lapel width ranges from medium to wide.
