Ticket Pockets on a "Work" suit

Is a Ticket Pocket too flashy for a conservative work environment? There are many nice suits (RLPL) that I would probably buy if it were not for the fact that they have a ticket pocket, but perhaps i'm over thinking this.

I don't want to spend a lot of money for a suit that I don't end up wearing.

Seriously, I feel a certain amount of pity for anyone who thinks a ticket pocket is 'flashy'.

One of my work suits has a ticket pocket : in med-grey cloth - single breasted, two-button, slanted pockets, side vents and trousers have a single pleat.

If were to be very critical, then I would say the slanted pockets are the least conservative feature (not the ticket pocket). Bearing in mind, the classic Savile Row look (re: Poole & Gieves) is a three-peice suit with a ticket pocket.

I agree that hacking pockets definitely makes the suit look flashier, but not the ticket pocket itself. There is always going to be a classic house doing something "flashy". Look at Huntsman, look at Richard Anderson.

There is no reason why not.
