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 think it looks very awkward. The angle and placement of the pockets really isn't right for accepting a hand on the end of a relaxed arm. I've tried it and it feels as awkward as it looks. Plus I'm sure they will become misshapen before too long.

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.

I think this is a measured, calculated way of showing nonchalance, and I don't care for it. I really don't care for the unbuttoned collar.

As for the pockets, I don't care whether they're opened or not, but for those that use them, what do you put in the pockets of your suit jacket? I've never felt the need to use them.

As for the small details: I used to be anal about 'em, but now I'm not. Personally, I think it's a change for the better.

Doc,

I completely agree. The one exception I keep getting hung-up on, though, is shiny wool. I'll admit that I do a few things (like taking my jacket off at my desk and trying to avoid sliding around on slick seats) to try to itigate the shine that develops on worsted. I'm sure your worsteds shine, too. Do you just not care and chalk the shine up to patina and love as well?

We get it; you don't like shine.

I shove my hands and other things in my pockets all the time. I simply don't care and find them much easier to gain access to then my interior pockets. In fact, nearly all of my coat pockets have smaller pockets sewn into the lining, like below. Why the hell else would they make coat pockets like this, if they were not intended to be used?

Yes, I know, I'm sorry for always posting about it too. I just wish I could get some more info on the ways that others tackle the issue (stave it off, throw away shiny garments, etc.). I'll ease up if I can get some more info.

Have more suits in your rotation. Buy better cloths.

What possible info do you want? Buy better quality fabrics. Deal with the fact that items that get worn get, well, worn.

Personally, I don't bother to unsew RTW jackets. However, I do make use of MTM jacket pockets.

Is this for real or meant to be sarcastic? Why would you keep your jacket pockets sewn shut??? You think they are intended to stay sewn shut?

It is a bit unsettling indeed if not a joke.
