    I was watching "˜Shadowlands' with Anthony Hopkins as C. S. Lewis and in one scene he is sporting a sports coat with a pocket watch in his breast pocket, with the chain coming up and ending attached to the lapel button.

    Of out of curiosity, was this common practice in a previous era, when waistcoat was not worn?

    At the Crombie website, go to the men's Autumn Winter collection. The first picture on the upper left shows such a chain. A very neat look. Crombie
