I'm looking in commissioning a coat from a local tailor for summer weddings and garden parties. I have set my mind on a DB 6x2 in RAF blue.
Now to the questions that have arisen me:
- I almost never opt for a ticket pocket on jackets (I prefer straight non slanted flap or patch pockets); but somehow I feel like it might look good in this special case. but I haven't seen many pictures of DB jackets with ticket pockets. Is this some sartorial mishap about to happen or should I just wing it? when do ticket pockets look good and if yes, slanted or straight? for reference I'm freakishly tall and there's usually enough space on my torso.

- next question is about lapel button holes. if this was me 1 year ago I wouldn't have thought a minute about a minuscule detail such as this, but since we are on styleforum I have to ask what is now the actual norm, regarding the amount of lapel button holes.
two, one on each side? or just one one one blade?
The rest is actually pretty clear for me, soft shoulder, unlined, mother of pearl buttons and some chunky peak lapels.
I will update this thread with my progress.
