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.

Definition: Topstitching (not pick stitching)

There seems to be some confusion about "topstitching" vs "pick stitching".  The photo example here is TOP STITCHING, which is a hard stitch that runs along the lapel, (and along edges of pocket if they are made patch style).  The stitch runs about 1/4" inset from the edge of lapel, and generally looks better on a slightly wider (at least 2.5" wide) lapel.  This style of lapel stitch is NOT the norm, and most suits/jackets ordered will not have this heavier Top Stitching unless they are ordered as a "casual" style jacket with patch pockets.

Definition: Ticket pocket

The ticket pocket is a 3rd smaller pocket usually on the wearer's righthand side, placed above the main pocket. Traditionally, there is a gap (approx 1/2" or so) between the main pocket and the ticket pocket above it.  The Thick as Thieves "house cut" ticket pocket is placed so that it overlaps the main pocket by about 1/4-3/8".  Ticket pocket can be requested either way, traditional or house cut.  Or if you prefer it can be omitted altogether with only the 2 main jacket pockets at the bottom.  The jacket show here has the traditional style ticket pocket, shown with optional detail of angled (aka hacking) pockets.
