Lapels say a lot about a suit and the man wearing it. If the lapels are too wide you’ll look like you just walked out of a 1950’s gangster movie; too narrow and you’ll look like your suit is trying to eat you. Modern runway tells us that the extreme is ‘cool,’ but you need what works when you are trying to get paid—not too slim, not too wide. Our lapels find themselves at an appropriate 2.5” at their widest point.
140’s Wool and the Wool S-number system – For many other manufacturers, the S-number, or the grading system for how wool is measured, seems to be the only thing that matters. Many feel that the higher the S-count the finer the wool and the better the suit. But this isn’t necessarily true. In fact, the higher count means that skinner strands of wool are made to create the weave, which essentially leads to a much lighter fabric that can’t stand the test of wrinkles, tears and repeat wearing. We have found a happy medium with super 140’s wool. The fabric is durable enough to stand the test of time while still maintaining its fine feel and breathability. In this case, higher isn’t always better.
The devil is in the details. Wear the jacket with a pair of jeans and simply stuff the pocket flap into the pocket. Bam! Piped pockets. Your jacket now looks like a casual blazer. Reverse that operation if you are headed to the boardroom or, better yet, a job interview.
