    Has anyone ever seen double ticket pockets? One ticket pocket per side? Do they exist? And are they TOO much?

    Ron & Ron make jackets with two ticket pockets, both on the right. They probably are too much, but fun anyway. I tend to like a single ticket pocket as I see it as balancing out the breast pocket. Two, and you're probably heading into safari-suit territory.

    I would agree. I like the mild asymmetry that one provides, but on both sides would be like deciding that one watch looks good, so why not two??

    It's too much.

    Never ever wear a suit with two ticket pockets, even if you have two bus tickets.

    I like the stuff on the Ron & Ron website, especially the slightly more conservative stuff from 2005.

    I rather have a ticket pocket on either side than three stacked on top of each other. The stacked ticket pockets are cool if you are just hanging around and going out to "Ëśclub' like places. But, it will never work for business situations.

    Ho ho. Such a suit would be an error, but a fun one.

    Instead of one ticket pocket either side, how about a double decker ticket pocket? That would keep the assymetry (sp)

    I think the train conducters on Long Island Railroad have double ticket pockets.

    The more the merrier. I had a suit made once with two flapless ticket pockets stacked on one side. It was like I had gills.

    Well, if you want to play around with details on a suit, then I guess two ticket pockets is less of an abomination than a triple vent or double notched lapel or something. Considering how popular they are getting, maybe you can find a double ticket pocket instance in the International Male Catalog sometime soon. [​IMG] Train conductors I can forgive for this. I guess it's function for them... K

    It's not that bad. I'm sure it's against every rule in the book, though. Not that I care. [​IMG]

    Talking about "safari suit", here is something I have been drooling on for a while : it's a MTM repro of a classic french army "saharienne" from 1906, left on picture below : [​IMG]

    How about a ticket pocket on the knee, and a double breast pocket?

    Knee ticket pockets would be like having tailored suit cargo pants.

    Maybe something new for the A&F crowd??

    Polo.com had a pair of velvet RLPL pants with like 6 pockets, several of them with zippers.
