Why aren't pockets sewn into shearling coats?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Can anyone tell me why manufacturers don't stitch around the parameter of the entire pocket into shearling coats?

I own a shearling coat; the pockets are stitched all around. Perhaps it varies by maker.

My shearling coat is. You are probably referencing a specific coat that you own/saw and not shearling coats in general.

Thats a good question, I know what you are talking about. Actually, I have seen more coats with the pockets unstitched rather than stitched. Its just held on by one string sometimes, or just flopping around.

That's it exactly.

if I'm not mistaken I think it's because these are mainly hand pockets 9not for storing stuff) and by having them not stitched all around you get an extra layer of shearling all around the pocket and the coat, thus making it less penetrable to cold. I find this is often the case on Shearling 1940's bomber jackets.

Thanks, makes sense.
