    Wide. I like big lapels regardless on a top coat. Looks more pea-coat / military

        I don't normally give a lot of thought to lapel width on a top coat. If you're going for a minimalist look, I would recommend trying to find a medium-width lapel. The lapels should look proportional to your body type. If you're a bigger guy, a medium-width lapel will look narrow on you, without looking overly skinny like an actual narrow lapel might.

          Agree with BenR. @Onstar, define big. I'm 6'1", 200 lbs, 41/42 jacket, 35 waist, and I tend to go with medium lapels. Narrow ones don't look right on me.

          My Measurements: 6' 1" height, 35" sleeves, 41-42" chest/jacket, 35" waist, 34" inseam, 11.5D/EEE shoes, 200 lbs
