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.
Adam is transitioning his career from public to private law and was looking to elevate his wardrobe to impress his clients. He decided on a grey 3 piece suit by Not your Fathers Suit with a peak lapel (suit $795, vest $195). To add some depth we styled the suit with a SAND shirt ($225) in navy and black check paired with an orange and navy polka dot Van Gils Tie ($85).
Blue Industry strikes their target spot on with distinctly wearable and sporty separates. Characterized by a slim silhouette and masculine textiles, the line’s individual elements are compelling enough to stand alone, yet layer exceptionally well. Classically cut shirts, jackets and knits share an obvious connection; they are all designed with purpose and precision to imbue the wearer with confidence in their sartorial status- even when they miss target practice.
