Probably need a sartorial legislator to comment on this one.
Yes. Yes, yes, yes. And the piping should be in the same material (grosgrain or satin) that faces the lapels.
After having a few DJs with flapped pockets (youthful ignorance), I did get a SB barathea jacket made with the sort of trim that one normally uses on breast pockets. Â I can't say that I regret the experiment, but it is definitely non-standard and my next one will be more conventional in this respect.
Grosgrain piping on side pockets is a new one to me, however. Â I've never had anything done except in the same material as the jacket-- and I can't recall a tailor ever offering grosgrain as an option. Â Seems to defeat the purpose of making the pockets look as sleek and unobtrusive as possible.
I don't understand. Breast pockets are usually just welt pockets made from self-cloth.
Yeah, that. Couldn't place the term so early in the day.
Someone made you a coat with welt pockets for the outside front hip pockets?.?
Yup. Doesn't look too bad, either. Which is not to say that I'll be pushing it on my acolytes.
Ditton. WTF? That's a new to me. Jon.
