I close them with staples after buying, because that weak white thread is not resistant enough. Also, my custom jackets have a Velcro lining that keeps them fixed to flannel shirts; I can therefore raise my arms without the jacket riding up. Seriously, who said you should leave the pockets closed?
lol, I guess. BTW, I hate non-buttoned collars with a coat and no tie, unless they are soft and sporty. I might be crazy as well. And whomever invented collar stays should have been kicked in the nuts. Multiple times. Many times. I'd still be kicking him today if he was alive. There's my take

 This x1000, Foo. It's not just SF. It's thousands of blogs spewing nonsense because they're biased towards certain brands, or tailors. They get paid by them or get freebies, of course.

 If it doesn't fit, yes. He doesn't agree: 
Nice gdl, although perhaps a less matte silk square would have been a better choice?
Clags, cord looks great with madder or challis too.   Nice overall, but I don't like that shirt at all..
