But I suppose consistency isnt an iGent preoccupation. ANd so, even if theyve got the only tweed suit in the county, they feel the need to heap on every extra to get their money's worth and make sure everyone visually ostracizes them, making them a martyr to tradition and style.

There are a few exceptions for patch pockets. It also depends on how nicely they are designed and set. My tailor makes them almost invisible other tailors make them obvious and thick.

Overcoats are completely different with regard to patch pockets, lapped seams and swelled edges.

Would turnback sleeve cuffs, deliberately made so the stripes don't line up, be an example of this phenomenon?

No shit. Would turnback sleeve cuffs, deliberately made so the stripes don't line up, be an example of this phenomenon?

Bump - Manton, what was the final outcome in the end? Did you ever end up getting the 3-piece patch?

Asking for a 'friend'.
