    For a dedicated blazer, I'd go three patch, lapped seams. For a blazer suit, it's evenly matched imo.

    as much as I know triple patch is casual, I hate the patch breast pocket. Never got around to liking it.

    I like it on everything but formal suits. I'm pretty thin, and I think adds a bit of fullness. Plus, I like lapped seams, and they go best w/ three patch pockets imo. [​IMG] (all shirts, some pants and a couple jackets by Luxire in the photos above and below)

    Thanks for the comments guys, I really like the look of the jacket in the first pic above @emptym, I think that's selling me on the triple patch and lapped seams. That's a Luxire jacket? I've actually never had a jacket with a patch breast pocket and I've been wanting to try one out for a while, and I think this might be a good opportunity to do that. I'm not getting the jacket as part of a Blazersuit, it will be worn strictly as a blazer with odd trou.

    I typically concur with emptym, but patch breast pockets are definitely not my thing. Two patch hip pockets and welt breast pocket is ideal for casual jackets IMO.

    ^Ah, another reason to get patch pockets, Beatlegeuse. :devil: JK, SB.

    That first jacket's from Chan. In those pics only the last two, deconstructed ones are Luxire. So far all my jackets from Luxire have been deconstructed, since I'd been really wanting to try some deconstructed jackets and no one seemed to be willing to make them. But we all know Luxire's policy on that. :D

    When Luxire started making jackets, I already had ten from Chan, and I haven't ordered another from them since. I felt like I had enough constructed jackets until recently, so now I have a navy fresco blazersuit in the pipeline at Luxire. It'll have light canvassing. Probably be welt breast with single, pick stitching, since I have a finmeresco three patch blazersuit and I could use a good "interview" suit that was a bit more formal. Although, I did get married in the three patch one.

    Triple patch, lapped seams, and 3 roll 2 fronts all go together so well, imo. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

    I have to agree with you. I can't bring myself to like the triple patch pocket look.

    I love patch breast pockets if there are two, though:

    Here's a pic of the three patch finmeresco:

    Edit: This was the first jacket from C and subsequent ones had more rounded patches and quarters. Pants are sagging a bit and wouldn't normally have so much break.

    Great pic of Mossrockss posted by Jsoftz in another thread:

    I don't love flapped patches but they can look good as they do here on on the P Johnson site. One thing I prefer strongly is for the lower pockets to begin level with the bottom front button and end pretty close to the hem (1/25-1.75"), as they do in this pic.

    My incoming jacket has this configuration, so I'll see how I like that. That's pretty much the norm for me, but I'm looking to try something different so all my jackets don't look the same as I start buying more. The only one I have now that I get any significant use out of is a navy Hopsack blazer from KW that has patch pockets and welt chest pocket.

    And of course I'll have to wait to decide anyway because I just checked the tracking and my expected delivery went from arriving at 10:30am today to N/A.

    +1, B. Both are good imo. Other than 0, 2, or 3 patch, flapped or open, and double vs single stitching, other things to consider are machine vs pick stitching, and, if pick stitched, how visible. Personally, I don't like flaps because I think they add too much bulk at the hips, w/o offering much function -- unless they're buttoned, which I've considered for travel jackets but have never gotten, since internal pockets can hold all I want on my person. Before discovering SF, I had machine-stitched jackets w/ three patches and pick-stitched jackets w/ two patches. The former were US-made, trad jackets and the latter Italian or "Italian style." Iirc, that was a pretty common, traditional distinction and I've stuck with it. But I do think double pick stitching can be nice, as on the beautiful NMWA jacket Greg posted in the cloth thread, quoted below. Those stitches are a maybe bit more visible than I'd prefer, but that's probably due in part to the lighting/editing:

    Got my stuff from the Linen sale. The G&R linen cotton is very very nice. Not too rough or slubby.

    I've never specified collar stiffness and lining but feel I need to.

    Basically I'm ordering a lightweight cotton casual shirt with a semi-spread collar. I want the collar to hold its shape under a jacket but not look like cardboard. Does medium stiffness and soft lining sound reasonable? I almost just want to tell Luxire what I want and trust their judgment.

    Thoughts much appreciated.
