Dege put one on my DB blazer, at their own suggestion. But the British have a long history of Heathenism, with Christianity being a relatively recent import in the scheme of things.

Mine have enamel and gold buttons using the tailor's own running fox logo. I like the design a lot. I don't think university buttons are particularly cheesy, though I don't have them. I considered getting ones with undergrad on the front and alternating graduate schools on the sleeves. I never did because it was it was a lot of work and I like the ones I have. I think using the enamel design school buttons might be a bit much and would go with the plain metal crest designs.

Flaps on patch pockets make baby Jesus cry.

I feel like this forum is having another seizure.

Perhaps I'm a rube and this doesn't really exist, but can you post a picture of this? And I'm assuming it's not a year- round weight? I've been looking for the perfect blazer and haven't found anything. I thought about the RLBL but that fell through. And if someone can create brass buttons that go over (on top of) horn/pearl buttons that would be awesome.

My favorite is an Oxxford hopsack.

Isn't that what babies do? Anyway, I agree, except for flap on patch for overcoats.

And I am thrilled that Brooks Brothers, as a bastion of classic style, would not commit such an obvious sartorial felony.. Oh wait..

Pwned!

Because if Brooks Brothers makes it, it must be in good taste.

I had a shirt like that in High School.

It does exist. I could post a picture but not at the moment and it is probably best for the cooler months.

I don't see anything wrong with flapped patch pockets on a jacket. As it happens, I don't have any, and I don't think I would get them, but it is a classic American look that goes back a long time.

On the other hand, if your comment was meant in the spirt of my comment -- since I don't like it, it should not be done -- then carry on.

Actually, I don't think for myself. It was more in the spirit of, "Since Manton doesn't like it, it shouldn't be done."
