Is this a previous London Lounge commission? Excellent stuff regardless.

Thanks David it is. One of my favourite from London Lounge, the weight is perfect for the Sydney winter.

Very nice. I've never been a big purple guy, but it works well with that fabric.

I also like the mini interior patch pocket as an extra kick. I did that for my blue linen jacket and find it a very fun detail.

The windowpanes are actually blue in IRL, the colours didn't come out too right in the image. The mini pockets is neat fits my iphone perfectly.

Nah son...you have to picture it in the context of the larger coat, not just those pics.

The overly squared pockets look bad on...looks way too 2-dimensional on a 3-dimensional coat.

The key to rocking a patch pocket is that you're rocking the patch. The particular shape doesn't matter. Just the fact that it is patch and not slash or flap is what makes it so kewl.

Actually, IRL there is hardly one iota of difference when in movement between all these different patch pockets.

No doubt but the boxiness would bother the hell out of me when standing still in front of the mirror.

There was a good discussion of patch pockets in the A&S thread

Some points of view from tailors I have worked with.
Keep the front pocket edge on the line of the plaid (when using plaid cloth)for a clean line.
Shape the front edge of the patch pocket to mirror the curve of the front quarter
Have the lower curved edge reflect the shape of the roundness of the fronts at the bottom where the front curves into the hem
Shape the front pocket edge straighter on a DB because of the straight line of the fronts.
Make them curvy/swervy and a point of interest all on their own regardless of the jacket lines or cloth pattern.
Place them close to the hem, farther from the hem or "just right"
Make them elongated
Make them squatty, short and wide
Flap them, don't flap them
Make the back height a touch higher than the front
Make the front height a touch higher than the back
Give the top line a crescent shape
Make the corners square not round
Make them with inverted pleats
Make them with box pleats
Make them bellows style

Another Chan. I asked Patrick to follow the curvature of the quarters
