I too think the above statement is accurate. IMHO, men wear jackets or peacoats left over right and women wear right over left. Of course, if you are left handed this could be different.

Pros, please correct me if I am wrong.


I think it is a habit of mine to button it the other way, but I've escaped without a lashing from you gents. haha! This advice though is pretty awesome though :)

Just curious what do you gents wear to the office in the hot and humid summer days? I was drenched in sweat today when I walked to work here in Norther Michigan. I was so embarrassed when I arrived work today, my colleagues thought I was victimized by the sprinklers shog[1].gif I figure most of you drive to work with AC in your cars; I only walk because I live about 10 minutes away from my place of work.

I live in New York City.  I take the train to work.  The underground stations are super hot.  I also have to walk about five minutes from the train to my job.  It was 91 today.  I know what you mean.  I wear linen and cotton mostly.  Good luck.

You know I generally endorse your style, ss, but belt buckle peeking out below the vest is a mortal sin.

Wet as in a monsoon of rain, I'm going to trade in my car for a boat soon.

Sugar - My britches must have slid down a little while running around. Usually the buckle doesn't show, forgive my sin.

SS, how about some suspenders. Since they will hide under your waistcoat, they could even be clip-on if your trousers don't have buttons.

You are making this up right. Considering the stick or cane was a follow on from the sword and in many cases contained on to later being a faithful companion when one had gout, I find this very hard to believe. Many canes have Pistol grips. Sorry Hal I just find that strange.

Here's one from a few days ago (I'm on the right) - please excuse the askew vest and shirt collar, I had just put my jacket back on to take the picture.

Twistoffat, you may be right historicly, but if you make emperic studies and walk with the stick like a real gentleman you´ll find that the "swing" is better if you hold the handle the "wrong" way. Try to walk with an umbrella. It works even better.

Hal , my father and his friends are real gentlemen and none of them walk or walked like that. They had canes as walking aids and not as fashion items. I myself had one with a folding seat as a handle but its ergonomics were different from yours. That said try walking like that on a busy street and see how long it takes to spear someone. Sorry Hal, I understand what you mean by it being comfortable to carry that way but a waking stick is that, a walking stick and not a carrying stick.
