What's with the pocket-aversion these days? I mean, not on a dressier shirt--but what about on a sport shirt?

My only problem with pockets is that they are never placed in the right place for my height on RTW or MTM shirts and I'm not inclined to order sport shirts bespoke yet.

I can't speak for anyone else, but I've never figured out what to put in a pocket that small without making it bulge out like I have a chest-tumor.

I put my sunglasses there. Sometimes my pen. When I'm not dressed up or wearing a sportcoat, I don't really care if there's a bulge. I just make sure I wear my sport shirts as sport shirts.

Sometimes I'll put a lens cap in the chest pocket.

Boarding pass + passport

If I'm in an office building where I need an ID to open doors, I keep the ID in my chest pocket.

Gorgeous. I would consider wearing nothing but jeans and t-shirts the rest of my life if I could have all the kick-ass watches, cameras, and pens that I've ever wanted.

Fortunately some (vintage) Leicas are somewhat reasonably priced. I'd consider them a better value than a digital camera that would be worth $200 in a few years. As for watches, it all depends on one's income--or overall desire. I think old Sheaffers are a good value for the money.

Good point of view, that the regularity and" finish"of machine products verusu the hand work of the craftsman. But you may just be excluding the one thing that would benefit you most.!

As of course you shouldnt be the last to know that retailors are not re-tailoring! Especially when their unknowing idolaritrous clientelle are buying brands and style but overlooking the value of fit.

Different consumers have their preferences but mature well styled individuals look for the details not just of fashion, which could be sold at half the price or less, or but details of fit, which are a true indication of a mans style and ability with craftman and other creative people.
Fit as STeve Samson defines it (especially for suits) is a wrinkle free cut. Wrinkles are defined as that which cannpt be pressed out. The real art that has the wearer benefit is that the shape of the body gives itself to the bias and shaping of the suit for not just a fashion frivolous compliment of new garments but the charm and masculinity of a compliment on a garment that still looks better than a new garment, because it has great shape!
