Please advise on m2m jacket project

5071 Views 10 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  rocco
Having used a London tailor for a while, I'm going made to measure on this with a local tailor who specialises in m2m. He will also make bespoke garments, but I want to give m2m a chance for a change.

I am considering the following:

DB, double vented, in grey herringbone (will work well with jeans).

Either 6x2 with peak lapel or 4x1 with fishmouth lapel

I am 5-10 and of slim build.

Eddie Murphy in 4x1 (but with notch lapel)

I'm not sure what a fishmouth lapel is, although as this is a double breasted sports coat my choice would be for a 4x2 with a peak lapel. Eddie Murphy's suit screams 1980's.
I didn't give much reasoning for my response, but I prefer 6x2 for suits. I think 4 buttons look better for sports coats and dinner jackets. The Duke of Kent is known for his 4x2 coats buttoned like a 4x1, although no one seems to mention that his suits were in fact 4x2. And the popularity of 4x1 suits in the 80's makes me despise them.
I think the fabric is fine for jeans, but I have a difficult time picturing a double breasted sports coat with jeans.
