Lapel (n,): the part on each side of a coat or jacket immediately below the collar that is folded back on either side of the front opening.

Nothing does more to dictate a suit’s character than the lapel. But with so many varieties to choose from it can be challenging to know which style is right for you. In this GOTstyle MANual we offer you the beginners guide to lapels as we discuss the three basic and most common forms of lapels: notched, peaked and shawl.

Style Tips
ITEM-OF-THE-WEEK

Lyle & Scott’s Fall 14 collaboration with genius Glaswegian Jonathon Saunders has resulted in vibrant pieces that work on or off the green. Case in point- a carefully crafted Merino wool, crew neck sweater. A muted front complete with golden eagle insignia, gives way to a surprising contrast dot print at back. Balance the motif with simple, slim denim and on-trend sneakers.

STYLE MANUAL
Gotstyle-Manual-Selvedge-Deinim

Selvedge (n,):  or “self-edge” is the edge of woven fabric finished to prevent unraveling which is achieved through a tighter, more dense weave.

Selvedge denim refers to a unique type of selvage that is made by means of using one continuous cross-yarn (the weft), which is passed back and forth through the vertical warp beams. This is traditionally finished at both edges with a contrasting warp (most commonly red); that is why this type of denim is sometimes referred to as “red selvedge.” This method of weaving the selvage is possible only when using a shuttle loom.

Shuttle looms weave a narrower 30-inch fabric, which is on average half the width of modern shuttleless Sulzer looms. Consequently a longer piece of fabric is required to make a pair of jeans from selvedge denim (approximately three yards). – Wikipedia
