I like ticket pockets. I've found that a lot of people on SF don't like them, but never got any really good explanations as to why. Usually when I post pics of jackets with ticket pockets, people tell me it would look better without it. It's a stylistic choice, so I've accepted that some people just won't like them. I can't change that off my current jacket, but like New Shoes said, you can do mostly anything you want with regards to pocket options on an individual order.
Personally I just find the look cleaner without them.
