It’s a strange melange of styles. But hey, what the hell. You know something was bound to follow the trend to skinny and tight. I wouldn’t have guessed wide and tight (and short), but what do I know? I still think skinny jeans look terrible.
My first thought was that it looks pretty sweet, like a suite a pirate would wear while waving a cutless. It also made me think it should be balanced by a wide hat with a feather in it, so I wonder if this is one of those styles, like a loincloth, that’s relatively site-specific.
In case of emergency pull the hidden cord, the lapels will fill with air and can be used as a floatation device.
“Well, you know what they say…. When in Rome…..”
“Yes? Go on…”
Nobody talking about the moose knuckles? Too low brow for this crowd I guess. I imagine it’s difficult to talk about moose knuckles while wearing a bow tie.
San Diego = 70s Anchorman style??
Those suits are bad. Did anyone else notice when you click the pictures of the suits your redirected to completely irrelevant pages? The first suit takes you to a picture of a golden eagle, and the second one goes to a the opening scenes of Star Wars on YouTube. Interesting. Once again, awful suits.
Only if you are well known for being a ballsy dresser. Overall, not a fan. It’s a poor attempt to mix old and new.
lapels are unfortunate
Looks to me like the new Tom Ford. He’s also adopted very wide lapels in his new collection.
80% of the time…this suits works all the time…
This is true. But on another note, DC’s Bond is wearing an ultra-modern suit with narrow lapels, shorter jacket, skinnier tie) in Skyfall, so there’s the opposite of the Roger Moore trend. But for everyone’s sake, I hope we never see lapels THAT wide again. I’m sure the trend will swing back towards wide lapels, but that wide… ? Yikes!
Thats great. Eat a decent lunch and have your suit rip off you like the hulk.
A wide lapel is not a bad thing, look at Tom Fords line F/W this year, but the silhouette should be geometrically proportioned. Look at old Hollywood movies, a wide peak lapel with a double breasted suit was all ways attractive, but the tone of today’s silhouettes are a slim cut, which does not work with a notch lapel shown there. I think Suitsupply may want to drop this style. (I may be wrong, they may be writing orders left and right). Has any one ordered one?
