Yes, of course. How does sewing up pockets make something MTM? Most OTR jackets have pockets sewn up.

I can see why people object, but I find the conceit more appealing than the uncomfortable awkwardness you see from guys trying to baby their nice clothes. They look like they're being held hostage by their suits.

A few flaws, intentional or not, are better than creepy perfection, or failed attempts at perfection.

It's pretty comfy, and I find I feel very nonchalant and chilled doing it. I wouldn't do it with my dj or a "smart" suit, but with a more casual jacket I am a big fan, and I don't see what is objectionable about it.

i do that all the time...

I really like carrying things in my front pockets. They're extremely useful for carrying tickets, receipts, notes, and other small paper items.

Soon we'll be complaining about people who smile for photos. Obviously an affectation and NOT spazzatura.

It shows you were nonchalant enough (gasp!) to unstitch the pockets open?
