Definition: Pick Stitching

To clarify the difference between a "top stitch" (heavier stitch that is more visible) vs "Pick Stitching" (the norm on most ordered jackets/suits), this photo is an example of PICK STITCHING.  Pick stitching is a small hand done stitch that runs along the lapel.  It is not a hard seam stitch that top stitching has (see other post below), but a more subtle hand finishing touch.  Some prefer NO lapel stitching, and if so desired you can request no pick stitching, but unless otherwise requested, all jackets will have pick stitching running along the lapel.
