I would tend to agree with that. I cant imagine the Gregory with patch pockets. You are overthinking it. You cant go wrong with ISAIA. I just ordered a dustin with patch pockets but thats actually my first one with patch pockets. All my other sports coats are flaps, probably bc they are Gregory, and I never thought they can be mistaken for orphaned suit jackets.
Get it and enjoy it.

This is the GREGORY I picked up. Wool/Silk/Linen fabric.

Although they are harder to find than the standard flapped pocket design, Isaia made versions of the older Scott, Maxim, Stewart, and Base S models with patch pockets, including lovely barchetta breast pockets.

I have a bunch of these and find that the patch pocket adds a more informal touch that is fine for an "odd" jacket - not that anyone off of SF would ever notice though.

They also made some of the diffusion, 1/2 canvassed line - the Gianluca Isaia blue label rigs - with 3 patch pockets as well.

I have only seen jetted pockets (no flap) on the Siro and - IIRC - a few Enrico models.

I tried a couple of patch pocket jackets at ISAIA (SAILOR and CAPRI) and found the CAPRI fit to be very informal. Very short jacket with natural shoulders. Really comfortable jacket. Almost reminded me of, dare I say, Boglioli.
