    Yikes. Looks like pretty slim pickings for you :| If you know your measurements consider expanding your search to 37 and maybe size 38, as some sellers post measurements and you may find something in a larger marked size that fits you, though I know that's doubtful when you're looking for sz 36 measurements.

    Honestly, I don't see what's the issue with the curved lapels on that jacket you linked. Looks perfectly fine to me. I'd wear it. (Assuming it fit.)

    There's also these two...

    http://img2.iwascoding.com/0/2013/11...D6E8D84933.jpg I was nervous because it was listed as 38, but has the same measurements as the 36 in the initial post.

    http://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/th...0350.JPG/520/0 and this one looks like a burlap sack, but I'm not sure if that's a function of the mannequin.

    clearly showing from the responses that most style is subjective. What works for one may not work for another. If you want the modern slim lines, it should be because most of your look is modern and slim. i.e - If you tend to wear a 501 instead of a 513, then that look may work better for you. As well as how tapered you make the waist suppression. Everything is subjective.

    My personal style tends to the more conservative (eg I think 513/14 are about as tapered as I want my jeans)...Thanks for the advice.

    +1. Wider lapels seem to be coming back in to style but the modern version almost has a reverse of that curvature. This is a bit of an extreme example but check out this 3 roll 2 from Sartoria Formosa:

    (Unrelated, but check out the fly on that one too.)

    I find Tweed to be more common in big sizes for some reason. As a 44T that is a bonus for me

    I like the original blazer you posted, and do not think the lapels are an issue. If you don't mind the curve, I doubt you'll run into many people who even notice. I say go for it.
