    Hi Guys,

    There seems to have been a bunch of talk recently about starting up a thread dedicated to patch pockets. I figured I'd take the initiative. Here are some of mine.

    All hip pockets photographed are ones from the left hand side of the coat. If I made it a 3-patch I included a photo of the breast pocket as well.

    The MAB ones are a bit sad IMO [​IMG]

    I hope my Breanish Chan comes out as nice as yours [​IMG]

    Yeah, the Chan are definitely tops. I do really like the Peter Lee breast pockets though. Curious how Chan would do there.

    Parker, it's this wool, linen and silk from Loro Piana? It's a great jacket.

    ^^ I think a SF-unapproved cloth thread is also in order. No offence, but SF seems to be unable to look beyond Minnis / Hardy while LP, Zegna, other Italian mills can do far better designs IMO.

    Yes. I like it quite a bit. And, yeah, I think the "designer" mills do some nicer looking designs and color combinations than the English. Although they also do quite a few uglier ones.

    Thanks, I agree with you, I think you've picked one of best from the bunch. I going to commission a jacket in the blue version of yours for Summer here in Aus.

    Is this a previous London Lounge commission? Excellent stuff regardless.

    Thanks David it is. One of my favourite from London Lounge, the weight is perfect for the Sydney winter.

    Very nice. I've never been a big purple guy, but it works well with that fabric.

    I also like the mini interior patch pocket as an extra kick. I did that for my blue linen jacket and find it a very fun detail.

    The windowpanes are actually blue in IRL, the colours didn't come out too right in the image. The mini pockets is neat fits my iphone perfectly.
