Time makes the best 3 roll 2.5 lapel roll in my experience. When a three button jacket arrives as a 3 roll top, the button point is too high for my taste. Fortuntely, after some time the lapels inevitably begin rolling to a point closer to mid-way between the top button and the center. That is of course where a 3 roll 2.5 ought to close and never does when I ask for it to be made that way.
The tropical navy pin dot suit is from John G. Hardy's defunct Rangoon bunch that was one of the best things that firm produced in my lifetime. It is worn with a Drake's necktie from last year, a Simonnot Godard tattersall pocket square and a peach shirt from that same maker's voile.
