I have found this interesting topic in the coatmaker section:
Well,I'm very interesting to the history of men cloting,so i can not resist to make some comment.
About the stiff & flat lapels,is possible that what we see as a mistake or a false step was at the time simply part of the look.
In other words,this was not "your father suit",so the lapels were flat like sheets of a rocket,and this was good.
More the lapels were narrow,so the stiff effect,terrible with broad lapels,were more clean and minimalist.
I think that is the best explanation,otherwise,as Sator said,in a very expensive ad campaign would find a better tailor for the "cosak" suit.
Now a question.
How much was really bad this Cosak Dormeuil?
The blend 55% terylene 45 % mohair is nasty sweaty and unbreathable,or the 45% natural mohair is enough for a decent breathing?
