    Oh, and Mina took considerable delight in showing me additional hand-finished details inside the jackets that she has started incorporating as an overall aspect of her desire to continuously improve the standard of what gets made for her customers.

    Which reminds me: one thing that struck me as unusual at first but now I rather like is the placement of the interior :foo:-wallet-pocket. At least on mine, they are all much closer to the scye, almost underarm.

    It's very comfortable location.

    And yes, the Despos Concept for flat front casual pants is the western pocket.

    My jeans from Jack/Knife have the western pocket, and I'm quite pleased with how they look and how comfortable they are. Would be interested to see them on trousers.

    I had the same placement on my most recent jackets, but at least on me the wallet is actually more visible and I find the silhouette a bit disturbed. I prefer the original placement.

    Just goes to show how things should be adapted to each person.

    Should you perhaps clarify to the uninitiated that the above is neither Despos nor Mina's work?

    I have the same placement on my most recent coat and I find it too deep for easy access. OTOH I don't use that pocket often. I am lacking a breast wallet, green or otherwise.

    Also, Mina was showing me all the interior hand details and pockets that she added.

    Describe the initiation process to me, and I will think about it.

    This is exactly and precisely what one says aloud when a group lunch tab arrives at Le Cinq.

    For years I've known them as continental pockets. Here are western style pockets on Jack/Knife jeans:
