Actually, the notch lapel is a fairly recent phenomenon (last 20 years or so) while the peak lapel is the traditional tuxedo.  According to etiquette sticklers, tuxedos by definition have peak lapels.

Notch lapels are more popular, I think for much the same reason that strapless wedding dresses are more popular- it’s what is most readily available.

The concern about the peak bending or wearing out shouldn’t be too much of a concern, in my mind, unless you are wearing it all the time- like 2+ times a month.

Angel, here are pictures of both:
