Suit without a pocket for pocket squares - Page 2

post #16 of 28
Maybe it's a matter of preference but I cannot live withou my pocket squares. My suit would look naked without it.

Wearing a pocket square is less of an issue than a suit without a breast pocket just looking weird.

If there's a suit you like that doesn't have a breast pocket, get it and enjoy it. It's not some horrible faux pas not to have a breast pocket. Most people will never notice.

That yoox suit is not a good idea though, especially for a first suit.

This sounds like a serious health issue. Seek medical attention.

I feel naked without my white silk pocket square. The jacket just seems incomplete to me

What's wrong with it? Dark grey, double vents, 95% wool. Seems pretty standard.

Do people actually wear pocket squares? To me they seem a bit forced these days. I guess it depends on the occasion.

Just from what I can remember without looking at the website again, the jacket is very short, lapels are quite small, elastane (nuff said), and I reiterate that it has no breast pocket. I don't know if others find that normal but I do not.

The lack of breast pocket is not "normal" but it doesn't make the suit inappropriate as a suit for OneSuit occasions like job interviews and weddings and whatever IMHO.

The problems are the ones Caustic cites, mainly that it's really short and tight, with high button stance.

You are probably right, but I know that if I saw it the absence would be glaring to me. You can say that that would be true because as someone who appreciates suits I would notice that where someone else would not, but still...

In any case, I doubt it matters much since the universe of suits that are cut properly and made well but don't have a breast pocket is very small. We can both agree that the Yoox suit isn't a great choice for a number of reasons.

I have a suede blazer that doesn't have a breast pocket but...that's suede, so it's kinda different already, and obviously much more casual. I don't mind the absence of a breast pocket though.

Oh definitely. It always amazes me that people are willing to pay prices like that from places like Yoox when so much more can be had from eBay or our very own consigners here on SF.
