DETAILS: FUNctional cuff buttons

Here is a detail of the sleeves on this navy tweed jacket.  There are 5 buttons total, 4 in smoky grey Mother of Pearl, and the bottom-most button in white Mother of Pearl.  The white button also has a white stitched buttonhole and is slightly larger in size than the grey ones.  Just an example of a "fun" detail for sport jackets that don't need to be so serious nor follow convention.  The fabric is the "true blue navy new tweed".

DETAILS: Patch pockets

Here's a closeup photo of patch pockets with flap.  It is topstitched, in this case in a light blue thread for contrast, although the topstitching is generally done in a self color thread.  This particular jacket is a "fun jacket" for social wear, as it has contrast light blue topstitching throughout along with different colored Mother of Pearl buttons.  The fabric used is the "true blue navy new tweed".

DETAILS: Frogmouth pockets

A close up photo of house cut frogmouth pockets.  The advantages, besides just looking cool, is it keeps the trouser silhouette when you're moving around, as normal side slant pockets will gape open a bit especially if you are bending over.  The disadvantage is if you use your pockets to carry a lot of items, it is harder to access, but we don't advocate carrying more than 1 item in each pocket!!  The fabric on this trouser is the sage-green "new tweed".
