When is this ticket pocket fad gonna end? - Page 3

post #31 of 61
If I am on the train, and I have a sporting jacket on, surely the fact that my jacket has a ticket pocket will relieve me of the usual panic "WHERE THE FKS MA FKIN TICKET!!!?!?!FK SAKE" when the guard comes along.

Do you expect me to carry my ticket in my regular pocket like some kind of Hessian? The corners would get rumpled!

Nonsense, let's get rid of flat front trousers and peak lapel single breasted jackets first. It does have uses and can look right unlike those other two.

I think they disturb the line of a well cut suit rather than enhance it. I also tend to think people who have them are captives of the Ralph Lauren syndrome. Honestly, I dont think if you already have them, you should throw your suits out but I do think they should be avoided in the future.

Well, let me assure you I'm not caught in any Lauren syndrome.

The disturbing the line of the suit line is a valid criticism which I understand. However, the reason I like them is because they are inherently wrong on a city suit plus I think they add, with a sympathetic cut, a little dash to the coat.

What's wrong with flat fronted trousers and peak lapels?

I hope soon. I hate ticket pockets and have rejected jackets that otherwise
I would have purchased on the spot soley on that basis.

But you need somewhere to hide your airplane cuff links.

Oh, come on, they're just cuff links. Whimsical links can be a nice addition.

I don't know anything about Carlo Franco.

Considering that the lounge suit historically derives from the sport suit, there is really nothing strange about having a ticket pocket on a suit jacket. But if you have a ticket pocket, I prefer the pockets to be slanted. Having three straight flapped pocket look a little square to my eyes. Also, the jacket need some length for the third pocket to fit in nicely. A modern short jacket with narrow lapels is not the right place for a ticket pocket, I think.

I consider three slanted hacking style pockets a nice way to emphasize the country sport heritage of the modern suit.

Yours,
Mr. Tweed

Guard? That's not a train that's a prison shuttle.
