No, I read it. It is just... so, sad.
I appreciate your empathy, sir. May this evening's commute be free of all of your subway nemeses.
That pocket does look a bit strange in the picture -- very small and sort of oddly shaped... is it? or is it just the pic?
Add me to the jackets with patch pockets club.
aj's comment has merit and it's a funny thing because I had this conversation with one of my coatmakers last week about the position of the buttonhole to the top edge/gorge of the lapel. As a result I am moving it downward to be more functional. If you place something in the buttonhole of the lapel on this jacket, it would sit way too high, maybe above the lapel and be all wobbly
What about with peak lapels, where the collar provides more support?
Why do you say more support? I would think less. Would put a bit lower on a peak, just the same
Could be the picture itself because the jacket is not worn but I have yet to see a patch pocket NSM makes that I like.
Also agree that the lapel hole placement appears to be higher. I wonder if it was requested.
I was just thinking rather than the notch space above the lapel you have the collar coming down to meet the top edge of the peak.
Guys, this is not NSM's house patch pocket style. I imagine that vox asked for that square shape to replicate the vintage style of the jacket drawing he posted above.
They touch/meet but don't support each other. Sometimes we put a single stitch to connect the collar and peak to keep the peak from flopping about but not always. I do a lot of peaks with a V opening between the peak and the collar edge.
There was a series of William Powell movies on TCM last night. The movie I watched had so many stylish suits. Powell had a beautiful shawl jacket, very impressed with the shape. Lots of tweedy suits and jackets with really great peak lapels. Proportion and balance is everything. Nothing looked exaggerated or extreme, just great style.
I like seeing variation. My patch has a teardrop shape but I would make the style of this jacket, no problem. When will we see the lower pockets?
I see. I couldn't tell with the lapel edges, must be my crappy monitor. Thanks.
