    Perhaps irrelevant since no one will see your back trousers anyway, since you should always have your jacket on.

    Kent, I say pockets with no buttons. There is something that I find a bit feminine about pants with no back pockets -- which is one reason why I have never tried Panta (which has one back pocket).

    Normally i prefer two back pockets; however, for a dinner suit, no pockets.

    If you don't have back pockets, you'll look like a chick. You'd might as well wear a thong underneath.

    I would prefer two pockets. Formal occasion or not, I'm still going to want my wallet and handkerchief where they normally are. And horn buttons or none- satin buttons wear way too quickly for that application.

    Formal trousers call for no pockets. Mine is in the work (should be completed before the end of the month) and have no back pockets and straight side pocket

    I don't even have pockets on my odd and suit trousers.

    I have tried both ways but always have my normal - two back pockets with buttons which I use - wallet (left) and handkerchief (right). Same in all trousers, I have none with only one.

    Having no back pockets just seems strange to me, so two standard pockets with horn buttons. Satin buttons on one's backside seem like they would be an absurd affectation.
