I think of grumpy i-Gentism is a kind of weird, obsessive hate against things that are popular on the internet (even if they have long traditions, wouldn't be noticed in real life, or are even in good taste). It's focused more on what's "bad" than what's "good." Less about a joy for clothes and more about a hate for people.
Maybe I'm reading this all wrong, but I got a lot grumpiness in the earlier posts.
But OK, maybe it was meant in humor and I'm reading it wrong. So we have a triple patch pocket jacket with pagoda shoulders and a shirt monogram that nobody would see. And a generally tasteful combination (I like the fit/ ensemble, by the way). If the thesis is that this is more tasteful than a guy in a navy business suit with spalla camicia shoulders (and standard everything else), I admit I don't agree. If the thesis is that this is a good way to look well-dressed in most business environments, then yes, I agree. I don't think most people in 2016 know how to read suits, so even if the jacket has triple patch pockets and pagoda shoulders, I assume most people don't know or care. Things such as pocket squares would get more notice; other things are too subtle for the non-hobbyist.
