The Terms: Jacketology

0 comments

Here are six rarely used bits of suit jargon you may never need to use but might be glad to know all the same.

The Drop: The term used to denote a suit's shape, i.e., a "drop six" means a trouser waist six inches smaller than the chest.

The Jigger: The single button in a double-breasted jacket that is always kept fastened.

Bosom Pocket: Pockets cut into the suit's fabric, usually covered with a flap.

Ticket Pocket: The third pocket above the side pocket of a jacket (normally the right one), usually with a flap.

Kissing Buttons: How cuff button on expensive suits are sewn so they almost overlap up the sleeve.

The Scye: The term for the armhole, the size and shape of which often determine the jacket's fit.

Head turner!

This is my 2nd Ella Bing wooden tie and it again has surpassed my expectations. The gift set to include cuff links was an incredible value to boot. Every time I wear this collection, I have friends, colleagues, and students simply marvel and the beautiful, intricate, and classy design of these bow ties. These are a MUST have for the well-heeled gentlemen.

Great Service For A Great Tie

The service from Ella Bing was so great! Not only was the tie fantastic it came packaged in a cigar box. His cool is that?

Classic and unique

Very classic looking glasses with a modern edge and touch. The bands are different and with the wood and silver it makes them very versatile. I have worn them with a suit, shirt and jeans and to the pool. Works in all environments.

AWESOME

Clark was knowledgeable of the items in the store. A lot of the items are locally made , and the music was off the hook , the hats were beautiful . Nice atmosphere.
