My first overcoat was of the black, knee-length, single breasted variety made of angora. I thought it was a great piece for someone who had not worn overcoats before, as it was easy to dress up and dress down be it as everyday wear for business, with jeans or over a dinner suit. I don't see why anyone would object to a black overcoat, but the SF experts have never ceased to astound me, so let's see what the experts say...
I'm aware that I may sound naive, but can't you report these things? And if there are enough reports, maybe some action might be taken? Knock on wood, I've never experienced anything like this in my life, and I travel not infrequently.
My impression, here in the US at least, is that people tend to go for the single-vented, brass button variety. I have not personally scene a navy blazer with ticket pockets, but will definitely be on the lookout now. I have mine with dual vents and monogrammed silver buttons. However, I am beginnning to think that navy blazers with horn buttons in subdued colours are more versatile, and can be more easily dressed down than the ones with brass, silver or metal buttons....

I personally don't care much for that stuff, but I really like the coat he was wearing when he arrived in the car, before he got changed.

I thought linen is supposed to wrinkle - it looks cool that way? In other words, a wrinkled linen suit (or linen anything) should not be a source for concern?
