Are hacking pockets dead?

I thrifted a tallia sport coat but it has hacking pockets. Not this one specifically but the pocket angle is the same. I know I prefer straight but do the slanted (hacking) ones look stupid?

6' 195 muscular build wrong side of 40 if any of that matters.

No problem with a hacking pocket, especially when you're talking about a sports coat where anything to set it apart from a standard suit jacket helps.

I agree. Nothing wrong with the slanted pockets on a sports coat/blazer

I agree also with the above comments.

The slant is a nice touch and less common. Reminiscent of some on Saville Row.
