STYLE TIP - THE LOW-DOWN ON SUIT JACKET POCKETS
Gentlemen, one of the things we have seen a lot lately is men assuming their suit jacket pockets must remain flipped out, and that the seams closing the actual pocket in there are not to be touched - this is not true!
When you pick up a new suit or jacket, the pockets are usually sewn closed so the suit can retain it's shape, and also to keep people from putting stuff in them.
You always have the option to open up the stitches (carefully), and we recommend it! This gives you the choice of placing the pocket flaps inside or out...and actually lets you use the pocket!
When the pocket flaps are on the inside, it provides you a sleeker silhouette, and a more formal overall look. This also works well for men who don't want too much attention drawn to their mid-section area.
When the pocket flaps are on the outside, it provides a more dressed down look. It can also help those of you who may be tall and thin to add some girth and frame to your silhouette.
BONUS: having the flaps on the outside gives an extra layer of protection in case you don't want things falling out.
It's up to you to decide how you want to rock them, but at least now you know you can actually use them and you have options!
