A Saturday night driver put his car into a power pole and knocked out electrical service to our rural community last night, making this post quite a bit later than it should have been. But the day was sunny on the coast, ideal for an in-between season jacket of silk and wool.
Odd jacketing for warm weather benefits from patch pockets, as the construction does not require lining to cover the business of conventional pockets inside a coat. And lighter colors, like the jacket worn by the author Gay Talese in this unattributed photo taken on a spring day in Manhattan, are just the thing.
Personally, I prefer a conventional breast pocket as the patch type is considerably smaller and seems to require its own wardrobe of undersized pocket squares. But that's a matter for individual choice.
