Donegal recommendation for suit - Page 3

post #31 of 354
FYI, I'm selling a pretty nice Thom Browne Donegal suit over in B&S right now... worst case it might be good to help you brainstorm about what you want.

Are there any pockets at all on that jacket?

[quote=Film Noir Buff;2684945]Patch pockets on a donegal tweed suit!? That will look nasty. Flap pockets and a welt. Also, maybe a ticket pocket. I regret getting a ticket pocket on mine but that would be fine. ... QUOTE]

What's the function of this configuration?

Two hip and one ticket flap pocket, and a breast welt pocket.

I think the P&H comes in a 14 oz., too, at least for some colors.

I wimped out and got a faux tweed from the Hardy Worsted Allsport book. 12 oz. seems about right for San Diego.

I'd say go with either three patch or two flap plus ticket flap plus breast welt configuration. Both of these will look appropriate on a suit as sporty as this one.

Would anyone's pocket recommendations change if this was going to be an odd jacket? Also, is tweed like this particularly suited for a 3/roll 2 configuration?

As I mentioned above, I was thinking of a donegal jacket myself, but now this thread has me considering the suit option. I'm still not sure how much I'd wear the whole ensemble, but it seems like the trousers and jacket could work equally well as separates.

Mine would not. I have several jackets with patch pockets and I regret it. My tailor puts them on artfully too, you dont even notice them, and I still dont like 'em. Many tailors put patch pockets on clumsily and they look like bellows pockets. I dont think patch pockets are out of line on an odd jacket but they look too casual on a suit, even a casual suit. In general, casual jackets look better with minimalist design features.

Ah, I understand. And thank you.

Nice suit! I like the topstitching. I'd probably also do that if I had the jacket made up with welt breast and flap pockets.
