ticket and hacking pockets and the other accoutrements that formerly communicated some degree of exclusivity / distinctiveness / quality (pick stitching being another) have by now been completely bastardized by downmarket brands as gimmicks to make their jackets stand out (the philosophy being, the more tricked-out the jacket, the more fashionable it is). i don't think ticket pockets are formal any longer. the H&M's and Zara's of the world have seen to that. True, But should you really be bothered? If I want a ticket pocket or hacking pockets or both even I just get them U don't care what high street brand are doing because a well cut garment make you stand out from the crowd anyway.
