    I don't care for unbuttoned collars, but seriously, the pockets thing is just stupid. Use them.

    Do you understand how making RTW cuffs functional by cutting out buttonholes may be an attempt to show that the jacket is MTM?

    Yes, of course. How does sewing up pockets make something MTM? Most OTR jackets have pockets sewn up.

    Meant to indicate nonchalance and show an indifference to their expensive and carefully coordinated clothing.

    I can see why people object, but I find the conceit more appealing than the uncomfortable awkwardness you see from guys trying to baby their nice clothes. They look like they're being held hostage by their suits.

    A few flaws, intentional or not, are better than creepy perfection, or failed attempts at perfection.

    To people who complain about putting hands in the jacket pocket, have you ever tried?
    It's pretty comfy, and I find I feel very nonchalant and chilled doing it. I wouldn't do it with my dj or a "smart" suit, but with a more casual jacket I am a big fan, and I don't see what is objectionable about it.


    i do that all the time...

    I really like carrying things in my front pockets. They're extremely useful for carrying tickets, receipts, notes, and other small paper items.

    Just when I think this forum can't get any weirder, people start complaining about others actually...gasp...using their pockets. [​IMG]

    Soon we'll be complaining about people who smile for photos. Obviously an affectation and NOT spazzatura.

    It shows you were nonchalant enough (gasp!) to unstitch the pockets open? [​IMG]
