    Oh yeah, if a jacket one I’ll use it, if it has two I’ll use both. Just a bit concerned about the rectangle showing through eventually from the photos I’ve seen!

    Hey Zakalwe:
    Greetings and welcome to the lounge.
    My take on this issue is simple.
    I like to have both hands free as much as possible in life.
    When concerned about how it looks, i much prefer a little pocket print then to see my hands full of what should be in my pockets.
    I recall when Levis finally put inside pockets in their truckers. I felt like i had been shorted something in life all those years doing without.
    Again welcome.
    Ps: happy medium...get pockets, don’t use them=no print, but there if ya need em.

    Also depends a lot on the hide thickness and color of the leather. The Stuart I just picked up has two and I have zero fear of them printingbthe jackets exterior and they are awfully convenient. I would not spec them on anything other than black cxl though.

    I am a big believer in inside pockets, for my glasses when I’m not using them, cell phone, etc. I have an inside horizontal pocket on my Aero Bootlegger (Cordovan CXL FQHH) and I don’t see any print through after 2.5 years of heavy wear. If I were you I would spec the pocket and risk the print.

    Thank you everyone for the input, think I’ll add some inside pockets to the order. Now back to fretting over sizing

    I have a blue vicenza board racer. It fits like a glove (well, a shirt ;-) ) and is very very trim fitting. I am a 40 and a 42 would have been more appropriate. Nevertheless it's a great jacket.
    It was a custom order and I asked for two chest pockets and two inside pockets.
    Problem : it adds a few layers to the chest area at the same place. The inside pockets are really well designed but they had a lot of thickness. If I had to redesign my order : I would ask to aero to sew a fabric pocket on the liner, just below the ribs...

    The chest pockets are ok for a small smartphone (IPhone 5 / SE) or a credit card holder...

    Here, i found an old post where the pocket protrusion can be observed. I would also like to get a new jacket and have my doubts too. I like the inner pockets and hate to see them protrude? I think that beside the trim fit, the protrusion can be also caused by the type of the leather and it seems that Horween is quite notorious about that?

    Interesting, I didn’t know they’d do patch pockets on the lining as they aren’t on the website as far as I can see.

    Funny you should mention sizing, im wondering about whether I need to go up one also. I’m slim, and I want a slim jacket, but I’ve also got fairly broad shoulders. 6’0”, 38” chest, and measuring a jacket that fits pretty well it’s 18” across the shoulder. I found some measurements here of the 38 and 40 BR and wondering if a 40 would be better for me than the 38 I’ve ordered..

    I would never want a patch pocket on the inside, as with any weight in them, over time they tend to sag the lining. They also need to be deep and/or fastened to keep things safe - the one in my Schott 618 I would never trust with anything.

    I have in the past had two inside pockets or one in an Aero; for me, the best combination is one inside pocket. I need my phone somewhere other than my trousers, and I prefer not to have my wallet in my trouser pocket either. My HWM is standard, no interior pocket. If I'm not carrying much, or have a bag, it's grand. Inside pockets will always show through eventually a bit, and if you always carry a phone in a neat fitting jacket you may see the same sort of spot there as you do in jeans on a back pocket that is always used for a phone or a wallet. Doesn't bother me, but it's all subjective aesthetic tastes: I wouldn't buy a teacore jacket or boots. A bike jacket I wouldn't feel the need or it, possibly not on another Bootlegger, but those have a lovely deep chest pocket on the outside, so. I find the usual, smaller chest zips you get on a halfbelt do't cope with much, but don't forget you're dealing with a design from the days before everyone carried big wallets, cards, phones, travel cards, mp3 players.....
