    Does anyone wear jetted pockets with their suits? It seems uncommon outside of formalwear, yet it's a look that's preferred by some sophisticated dressers, including Prince Charles. I hardly ever see it in the US, but it has a streamlined appearance that's quite elegant:

    I prefer jetted pockets; however, dislike the 'hands-in-jacket-pocket' look

    I wonder who Akihito's tailor is?
