I didn't see noodles holding a rifle or ammo. Just saying.

 

Also, I think you are talking about bellows pockets, not flapped pockets.

Looks like I've accidentally opened another chapter of this thread that will require more posts than 25,000 for me to consistently do OJT properly. I am so lost.

Which are not normal suit flapped pockets. So the rule still stands.

No I'm not referring to bellows pockets. I'm referring to flapped patch pockets like the OP was. To be clear though, there is still nothing wrong with a plain flap pocket on a SC.

Button color can depend on fabric color. Can be anything from MOP to Smoke MOP (a dark shiny grey), to corozo (a nice caramel color)

So...what's wrong with this? Even if the picture is crappy.

So let me ask you all who have trained eyes, did my first OJT seem odd? Did things stand out as a bit off as it is being discussed here?

@cakv there is nothing wrong with those.

Undoubtedly.

@cakv, pockets on both are fine.
post #24342 of 37662

I think it depends on the desired effect, don’t you?  To be sure, patch pockets are inarguably more casual than flap pockets, which is why we associate them with odd jackets.  But some odd jackets are traditionally more formal than others, however;  the navy blazer being the most obvious example, but I would include here hacking jackets and other more tailored jacket-types associated with the equestrian and military preoccupations of the British landed class back in the day, and patch pockets would look odd on these.  Moreover the flap serves an important practical purpose in the less closely tailored jackets associated with the shooting, fishing, and other sporting activities of those folk.

 

Cheers,

Both fine. The gold buttons and patch flap make it more casual.

 

Second is fine because of the color/jacket pattern

Dude, just keep it simple for now. Textured fabric, patch pockets and lighter buttons. If your jacket has those features you can wear it as an odd jacket, simple as that. You can look into all of the exceptions later on.
