Unveiling the Basics

When it comes to custom suits, it's the small details that often make a significant impact, and nothing exemplifies this better than the style of the lapel. A seemingly minor feature, the lapel plays a central role in defining the suit's overall look and can greatly influence the tone of your attire. In this guide, we will take a deep dive into the different lapel styles and help you choose the one that's best suited for your next Enzo Custom Suit.

The Classic Notch Lapel

The notch lapel is the most common style you'll see on suits today, characterized by a notch where the lapel meets the collar. It's versatile, suitable for a range of occasions from job interviews to casual weddings. An Enzo Custom Suit with a notch lapel offers a traditional look that never goes out of style.

The Elegant Peak Lapel

For those seeking a more formal or fashion-forward appearance, the peak lapel is an excellent choice. The edges of the lapel point upwards towards the shoulders, offering a broader and more commanding look. Enzo Custom's range of premium fabrics pairs exceptionally well with peak lapels for that extra dash of elegance.

The Shawl Lapel: Unmatched Smoothness

If you’re aiming for a look that is seamless and smooth, a shawl lapel is your go-to option. Frequently seen on tuxedos, this lapel style is a continuous curve without breaks or points. It's an excellent choice for black-tie events and offers a sleek, modern vibe.
