BookATailor NYC - Patch Pockets


Perhaps the easiest pocket to create; the patch pocket is sewn on the outside of the garment rather than sewn between the shell and the lining. The shape and size of the patch pocket can vary greatly; round and beveled pockets are common cuts but not as popular as square-shaped pockets. Patch pockets are usually large and add more lines to break up the otherwise streamline cut of a sport coat. Therefore, sport coats with patch pockets are still going to make you look well-dressed, but not over-dressed as if you would were a suit or a blazer. Even if you find the patch pockets to be a convenient for pocketing all of your belongings, you should treat the patch pockets no different than straight pockets. It may seem paradoxical that larger pockets means more capacity limits, but patch pockets should not be treated like tool-belt compartments. Be gentle with your garment. Stop by BookATailor for a patch pocket made perfectly the way you want it.
