THE CHRONICLE OF JULIEN SCAVINI – The majority of the time, a jacket will have an outside pocket on either side of the hips. This pocket will be constructed of two lines of fabric, which will result in an opening that will be covered by a short flap.
The jacket features, in the great majority of instances, a poached exterior that is comprised of two lines of cloth, the “piping,” which forms an opening that is protected by a little flap. This is located on each side of the hips.
This flap, which had the appearance of an upside-down crown at the time of Louis XIV, already existed. These days all that remains of it is a simple, almost rounded rectangle.
In most cases, the width of the pocket is 14 centimeters, while the height of the flap is 5 centimeters. In the 1970s, we achieved a maximum height of 7 cm. An extravagant array of lines that stands in complete opposition to the present chick. When present at all on a jacket with a slim fit, the flap has a maximum measurement of three centimeters. A scene that was so tragic causes the tailor to break down and cry. Because only the evening dress jacket typically does not have it.
A tuxedo, a velvet cocktail jacket, or a smoking room jacket will never have flaps on the pockets. Neither will a smoking jacket. Whether it is a standalone blazer or an integral component of a suit, the double-breasted jacket almost invariably lacks flaps. This omission of flaps is an indication of formality.
