    I've only just learned to love jackets with two breast pockets ...

    Love it.

    My pleat machine has too many pleats on the chest to allow a breast pocket. The downside is, you can't carry a wallet in the inside chest pocket or you look like you have a man boob - only one. Not a good look.

    Fastuni found a 30s catalog with another "Pleatmachine". Mind if I post the picture?

    No, Flo, post ahead. I think Fastuni posted it somewhere before, didn't he?

    BK, that's the look.

    @Two Types

    Interestingly enough German tailoring publications from 1943/44 call for omitting the ¨useless" breast pocket altogether from all suits (wartime saving measure).
    One of the reasons given was that it is easier to turn the fabric of the suit and have no slit on the chest on the wrong side.

    They followed the example of Danish tailors and of course tried to suggest that the pocket-less chest is more youthful.^^
