Should a sport coat's pocket welt pattern align with that of the surrounding material?

Just got a mauve windowpane SC from eHaberdasher. I like the material a lot, but the the welt fabric's lack of alignment with the surrounding material seems jarring. The upper pocket on the right side (wearers right) isn't even positioned in the same orientation as the rest of the pocket - the horizontal stripe is parallel with the welt.

Is this not uncommon?

Yeah that's a poorly pattern-matched jacket. Too bad, looks like a nice fabric.
