I agree that jetted pockets look great, but why not opt for flap pockets and just tuck the flaps in? You can wear them as jetted 99% of the time, but should the flap mood strike, then they're always there on standby.
That is common sense…
… but like I wrote in the description: this a single topic blog, so it is by definition nerdy and due to nature of the content very snobby. So I say: fuck hybrid solutions.
No question. I just want to tell you this is a wonderful blog. The Italian elite is indeed the best dressers, and you have great taste in selecting the pictures. Thanks for keeping this blog running.
It is always nice to receive thank-yous. I started this blog to spread the message of understatement, sartorial conservatism and virtues of classically cut tailored clothing (no baggy stuff like 1980s Armani, no tight, short and cropped stuff like #menswear today). 95% of the people seen on this blog use proper tailors, the result shows. I always try to post high resolution pics, so please enlarge ‘em to look for details.
With regards to Italian elites being the best dressers, that not entirely true. One could look at the European or British upperclass, Japanese bespoke afficionados or the male film stars of the Golden Age of Hollywood and paint a similar picture. Why do they dress well? They care(d) about tradition, mores, what is (was) sensible, were skeptical of fads and are always limited in their choices because of their good taste. And BTW: they never aspired to dress like mens store owners (the prole Lino Ieluzzi comes to mind).
