post #29566 of 37392

does anyone else swap buttons periodically on jackets?

post #29567 of 37392
I've never swapped buttons on a jacket. I can see myself doing it for a casual navy or RAF suit if I wore the pants out and wanted to make it more clearly odd-jacket-esque, but I can't really see myself doing it in many other contexts.

When I was looking for a navy blazer with MOP buttons someone suggested taking my blazer with brass buttons and simply switching them out every summer and back every fall. This seemed a bit ridiculous to me.

Ill assume this was answered, but in case it wasn't, Doing The Other, as in, an homage.

Yeah, my work and personal schedule changed a lot, leaving me way less time for SF. Which incidentally makes this thread almost impossible to follow. I miss a few days and its a almost a couple hundred new posts. A week, might be close to 500 or more new posts. I cant get myself to go through it all, so I kinda fell off the Noodle wagon. Now I just like to pop in from time to time to say hey to mah bois here.

DTO was the name of a member. You can read about the origins of the term here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/178802/humble-apology/0_50.

Ok, you are nuts.

So, it's okay not to like flaps, but not to like flapped patch pockets is nuts?
post #29574 of 37392

I don't get the flap hate.  I think patches are incongruous on the most formal/conservative of suits, and besom/jetted pockets look strange on country or informal jackets, but otherwise, pockets don't get me excited one way or the other.

No, to like patch pockets and not like flapped patch pockets is nuts.

Guess I'm nuts, but y'all knew that already. Never cared for flapped patch.

:fu:

I think Im with helden here. Flap, besom, patch, they all have a place. No reason to discount any out of hand imo.
post #29579 of 37392

I am beginning to believe that the most personal preference a person can have is to understand that there is a place for everything, and indeed everything has its place. Except black blazers...

post #29580 of 37392
If I were positioning this as a rule, or even a guideline, I would understand the reaction, but I'm expressing a personal preference. Like not wanting to wear loafers or dubs or white bucks.

I like flapped patch pockets on overcoats, so there's that.
