I would absolutely ask for a remake. Now you have something that is neither formal nor casual and just looks out of place. Sad that they messed up but I believe that the clashes of formality makes it near impossible to pull off.

So to be clear, it does have patch pockets, just not that kind of flapped patch pocket? Because I wonder if it still might work.
The pockets on the end of the suit are patched,the chest pocket has a button in the middle

I’m curious how the breast pocket was selected. How did they end up selecting this pocket? Was this a mistake with the order taking, with the construction, or with the order placing?

Get the jacket remade for sure
Unless SuitSupply still has the same bolt of fabric, @kithking23 will have to get the entire suit made again. Otherwise, there is a risk of mismatched suit separates.

It's funny that this is even a discussion. You pay extra to have something custom made, and they give you something else? Of course you send it back. You're the king of kith, and you deserve better.

Is there anything a tailor can do?

About a mismatch? I don't believe so. The mismatch happens with differences in color. So, unless someone is somehow able to die the fabric a different color, the only alternative is wearing items with slightly different colors.

For those that own both Lazio and the Napoli jackets, how do your sizes compare between the two fits? Do you normally get the same size? The Napoli's shoulders are slightly wider, so that's my concern.

Ah! Thinking about what would need to be done, a good tailor might be able to get it to a regular patch pocket, without the flap (might--thought I am not a tailor). But it might be almost impossible to put in a welted pocket as I think about how those are constructed.

I have a Napoli and two Lazios. The Napoli has more breathing room and the Lazios are more trim, but I wear the same size in both. It’s not enough of a difference to size up or down.

@kithking23 Since the jacket has patch pockets, what about asking them to discount the jacket heavily and keep it as a sportcoat?
