    Love the shirt collar story, Two Types. About the gap...maybe it is just an illusion caused by a shadow.

    Sporty brits are always a good look too (well back in the days at least)

    You can get that separation at the gorge from the stress placed on the lapel from buttoning the jacket. Not saying it's the case here but it does happen.

    The character is supposed to be a rich fool, but i doubt if the error on the lapel was on purpose. These low-budget British films don't seem to have paid too much attention to costume.

    Most likely it was just bad tailoring that no one noticed.

    Great suit. Note the missing pant cuffs. Makes me appreciate the 4 button DB.

    BTW a Norfolk-sportcoat from Monsieur Verdoux has been sold some time ago:

    Not sure about the db without trouser cuffs! The trousers look very plain compared to the jacket. Quite a classic looking suit though.
    What is weird about those gentlemen HBK?
    The guy on the left looks like he is suffocating in that jacket...

    I'm sure; It looks wrong.
