Ticket pockets revisited - Page 2

post #16 of 25
When I visited Ginza Tailor last weekend to discuss bespoke suits, they called what everyone here calls a ticket pocket a change pocket. The ticket pocket was a small vertical pocket concealed on the inside of the left lapel. That makes more sense to me and seems more utilitarian. It is a standard feature of their suits.

How about thoughts on the very concept of a ticket pocket? I will be ordering one of GS suits and was wondering whether it would look better with or without a ticket pocket.

I remember a thread about this some time ago. I'd been using the same terminology from having lived in Japan, but no one in the states was familiar with what I was calling a ticket pocket. I have one on a windowpane suit and really like it.

Here is a picture of a ticket pocket from the Ginza Tailor website. It is the thin vertical pocket on the pinstriped fabric in the upper left.

This is what the bespoke tailoring firm I will be partonizing called a ticket pocket, and I think they might know what they're talking about.

Thank you for the clarification. This is one of the few things I've encountered in my many years of residence in Japan that actually makes more sense to me than the American nomenclature.

Thats my plan once I buy one of these babies in a month or two.

Rubinacci also uses that term. I actually am only so-so on his version as I think that the change pocket is slightly too long. I only have one suit that way and am not sold on doing it again.

This is what the Japanese and indeed some Chinese have as it is an absolute faux pas to put a business card you have been presented with in a pocket low down on the suit.

Personaly I prefer all change and ticket pockets inside the jacket and have three - 2 left and one right.

Neat! I have a HS&M tux from the '30's that has the same type of ticket pocket, and though I didn't know that's what it was, I did use it for my tickets last time I wore it as the pocket is too small for a wallet, and in the wrong place for a cell.

BTW, I the lining details!

Do any of our discerning members have any experience of the Japanese custom for the ticket pocket behind the left lapel?

It has been reported somewhere that Marks and Spencer one of the UK's leading stores has an up market RTW with this feature.
