Pocket Square Problem - suit chest pocket sewn shut! - Page 2

post #16 of 42
I've actually seen two people the past week with blazer vents with the stitch still intact ... not to mention the bottom button fastened. I said nothing to the first guy, but then I felt bad. So, I mentioned something discreetly to the second guy. Just doing my part, I guess.

Nothing worse than someone with a double vented jacket sporting two 'x's on their jacket where the vents are sewn shut and not opened before wearing.

i still, on a consistent basis, see women and men have their back vents, either it be a peacoat, overcoat, or suitcoat, sewn closed.

Interestingly enough, I have also seen mall brand jackets (Zara, Massimo Dutti...) with fake chest pockets.

Especially when they have their hands in their pants pocket and the jacket rides all the way up to the waist.

Saw a guy doing this with a centre vent jacket ... you can imagine what that looked like

I thought I was the only person who felt like this!!

That is their intended purpose. Why wouldn't you use them?

You can ruin the drape of a jacket if you place bulky items in the pockets. I only use the inside 2 pockets to carry around a wallet (with a few keys) and my phone. Everything else goes in my bag.

The only things ever in my pants pockets are my hands.

Some do - just carefully remove them, they are not usually difficult so to do.

I once had a guy sitting next to me on the plane with an Armani suit with the tag on the sleeve. We started chatting, and I told him that the tag is supposed to come off.

His response was that others have told him that as well, but how else would he let the world know he is wearing an Armani suit?

Sadly, I am sure that he is not the only one.

Okay, I can see where this was a limitation of the internet medium.

I don't advocate loading your pockets up with heavy items, either. I will carry moneyclip, pen, small knife, etc. in various pockets. I have also placed my hands in coat pockets before, and will again.

At some point, they are just clothes. Wear them until they're no good, and get new ones.

I use my jacket pockets to carry Lead Bricks, will this ruin the drape?

I stuff the chest pocket with a bad of weed, and the inside pockets....Cocaine and Heroine...i hope this doesnt effect the drape.

+1. Thank you. At the end of the day, they are simply clothes. Clothes are supposed to be utilitarian (well, some of them anyway).

Not using their basic functions as such is defeating the purpose, and at some point, quite ridiculous.

You'll be fine, you won't have enough space to carry enough to effect the drape.
