HOW IT WORKS: JACKET

JACKET LAPELS

Notch lapels are the most widely used and most versatile. Peak lapels are for a touch of flair. Slim lapels are more fashion forward, noticeably slimmer than the average suit.

JACKET BUTTONS

Two button suits are often your best choice. One button suits are more trendy. Three button (Neapolitan Style) suits are a matter of preference and work well with a taller frame. Double-breasted jackets offer a bolder yet elegant look, and are recommended to be worn with a peak lapel.

JACKET POCKETS

Appropriate for any occasion, flap pockets are the most versatile option and traditionally the standard on suit jackets. More polished and sleek, jetted pockets are ideal for formal wear. Dynamic and sporting, slanted pockets, with or without flaps, are more fashion forward and perfect for smart casual and weekend looks.
