Caraceni insisted on besom pockets for my Solaro suitcoat, but I think that is just their general preference on suits showing and not specific to Solaro. Mine was DB, but I don't think that had anything to do with it either.

For a heavy tweed sportcoat they did flap pockets.

dopey: have you ever posted any pics of your Caraceni suit?

I think there are a few in some follow-up posts I made on the LL in the thread I started before my first trip to Rome (about three years ago). Not full suit pics, just some details.

Thanks - I'll dig'em up. Very interested in seeing the Caraceni.

There are better pics of a caraceni suit in a recent thread on a bespoke italian wedding (titled something like that).
I really like Caraceni, but I only had a week there on my most recent trip so didn't order anything.

Thanks for the note - 'll look for that thread as well.

I thought that on your first trip, Caraceni was willing to accomodate a fitting or two within a week's timeframe?

I ordered flat front and his reasoning was that slant tends to puff out and open when you move. I find the on seam does exactly that and it's awkward to get my hands into them. I think they are also a bit tight not at the waist but about midway between the waist and the crotch, so maybe a small adjustment will alleviate this. I'll find out next month in Naples.

That was the reasoning I expected. Plain front trousers have to be cut just right to accommodate a 1/4 top (slant) pocket. Did you notice if they placed a small dart in the center of the front panel at the waist? This would help relieve the tightness at the midpoint and help the pocket lay flat. How they shape the curve of the hip and how the widest point of the hip matches your hip all matters.

I strongly dislike onseam pockets. There are not flattering and you have to reach back to access them. They don't expand enough when you put your hand in the pocket. I only use them on Tuxedo trousers and with regular pleats.

Chris, I'm curious - I thought on-seam pockets were harder to fit than slant, no? Aside from them also being harder to get your hands into (which I agree), they also seem more likely to flare out when the trousers aren't cut right for the wearer. Slants don't seem to have this problem. Am I mistaken?

Chris, may I see some of your pants with off-seam pockets?

I'd love to see some shots of the flannel suit when it is made up.

Don't worry folks - you'll see photos once they are ready. Likely mid-November.
