Working Cuff Buttons

Working buttons are generally indicative of a custom and quality suit. So, what is it? A working cuff is simply a Jacket made with real buttons and buttonholes on the cuffs which actually work!

Ticket Pocket

The ticket pocket is a small flapped or jetted pocket placed just above the right main hip pocket on a men’s jacket.

The ticket pocket, also known as change pocket, has an old British history. At first it wasn’t even used to store a ticket, as the name indicates today.

It became useful before the huge popularity of the railroad, as it was placed on the jackets of equestrians who needed quick access to coins at toll points. Allowing gentlemen to keep their jackets buttoned, this exterior pocket held cash in an extremely convenient way.

Waistcoat Lapels

Simply put, you are just adding the lapels that you more commonly see on a jacket to your waistcoat. A waistcoat with lapels is a little more elegant and dandy

It also works a little better when worn on it’s own. It’s more jacket-like, you could say.

Double Breasted Jacket

double-breasted garment is a coatjacket, or vest with wide, overlapping front flaps which has on its front two symmetrical columns of buttons.

By contrast, a single-breasted item has a narrow overlap and only one column of buttons.

Peak Lapels

The peaked lapel (or peak lapelpointed lapel) is the most formal type of lapel, featuring on double-breasted jackets and most formal coats and tuxedos.

A peaked lapel is defined by the lapel edges pointing upwards and towards the shoulder. You can't really dress down a peaked lapel either, if you decide to go peaked then you'll stand out from the crowd and really be making a statement.

The ability to cut peak lapels properly on a single-breasted suit is one of the most challenging tailoring tasks, even for very experienced tailors.
