    Oh my gawd more patch pockets the internet is gonna melt! Nice look Nii.

    I like Stitch's patch pockets on that suit. All I see is flaps, flaps everywhere. Change it up from time to time. Rock on.

    The patch pockets in Stitchy's suit are fine, they just make it more casual. Makes it lean towards being a casual suit rather than business, which is fine if that's what he wants (though I wouldn't have gone casual on any details with a suit like that). But if you wanted a business suit, would you put a throat latch, half belt, action back, or leather buttons on it? Putting patch pockets is the same thing...

    not as long as derek is in the house.


    was nothing worth reading, i assure you.


    thanks, CD. needless to say, i agree.


    i certainly agree they are a casual detail. that being said, i think your comparisons to "throat latch, half belt, action back, or leather buttons" are not on point. patch pockets on an otherwise business-ey suit are nothing like those things. i think you have gone overboard.

    and yes, it is what i wanted. i dont sit in board meetings or work in politics. i dont think it in any way detracts from the success of the suit, and its an enjoyable detail i have the good fortune of employing.

    It's done. Stitchy has Patch Pockets on a suit.

    And that's that.

    I do think they are the same thing. I might just be a bit [​IMG]ish about patch pockets. However, I do agree that it doesn't detract from the success of the suit - simply because it's not a suit you will use for business.

    light skinned joos cannot wear stark outfits? :(

    That would leave the Hasidim very much in the sartorial lurch (not that they would notice, in general . . . )

    I was wondering when someone was going to comment on the UFO that had landed on Mr. Dawg's head . . .

    Is it bespoke? And do you wear it for religious reasons?

    Agreed (no surprise). However, I'm probably going to do something similar for the lack of option. Going to drop a suit length of a dark navy linen and silk blend to my tailor. I intend to wear the jacket as a sports coat, however, I'm aware that the color isn't optimal (a lighter shade would be better). Thus I'm going back and forth with the configurations, so far: welt breast, patch on hips, notch, three sleeve buttons (standard for a Uruguayan sports coat).

    I know you've heard it before, from me. But I'll say it one last time.

    You shouldn't buy SuitSupply again. It's not flattering with such a high button stance. You should stick to Kent Wang.

    Actually I was thinking Donuts when I saw that pic.. where did you get that? Comment still stands.

    I mean that thing is really high.

    Welt breast and patch hip pockets sounds fine to me on a linen suit. Have you considered a single sleeve button? Someone posted something like that a couple days ago (don't recall who) and I think it looked nice.

    That's a bespoke Pal Zileri suit, I do wear other brands than just SS ;) Button stance is less than 2 inches above my belly button. It's just exaggerated because I'm holding my arm in an unnatural pose. If I stand naturally you won't see any tie or belt peeping out.

    You see, no tie or belt:
