|Funny, as the first thing I noticed was the white satin bow tie and fashionable stubble. Both are more unbecoming to a dinner suit than one hand in the pocket.|
Now, maybe I'm just a twenty-something who doesn't know the first thing about life, but I fail to see how it is all that offensive. Clothes are ultimately still meant to be worn, not treated like pieces of valuable art. Doesn't matter if it's $300 Jos. A. Bank or $3000 Savile Row bespoke suit. We move in them. We talk in them. We keep our wallet, keys, and phone in them. Last I checked, no one stands in them like mannequins all day so people can appreciate that perfect quarter inch of shirt cuff showing. If they do, they have worse problems than behaving casually!
Don't get me wrong. To be sure, it's not a good habit to do all the time let alone with both hands firmly in there. But ultimately we live in our clothes. Surely we can forgive the sin of occasionally putting a hand or two in our trouser pockets. Part of the beauty of tailored clothing is how it still looks nice even when we aren't taking fit pics for the "What Are You Wearing" threads on menswear forums.
What are your opinions on this?
|Pierce Brosnan has at times been criticized for this habit. At least with double vents the fabric bunching is limited to the sides instead of raising up the back as well.|
