Jackets are fascinating things considering how at their structural core, they've been the same for longer than I've been alive. Yet, when you get down to the final notes, you could easily own twenty of them without repeating details. From pocket style to lapels, the variations seem to only be limited by your imagination and the capabilities of your tailor.
While my interests remain firmly rooted in classic tailoring, I'm starting to experiment more with the details especially as I've really gotten into Italian tailoring. One such area of experimentation is with my lapels. In today's environment, you can get your hands of jackets with lapels so skinny, you can barely hide a popsicle stick behind them. Conversely, you can get lapels so ridiculously wide, you could use them for parasailing. These things remind me that balance is key, so I decided to experiment with a wider peak lapel, which you see here and a wider notch lapel which I'll share in a future post.
