What Goes In Each Pocket of a Custom Suit

I was recently asked this question on Roosh’s Travel Forum (Best Travel Forum on The Internet by the way):


I know smoking is your thing (best pickup line) so I thought I would ask. Do you carry a lighter on you all the time? And do you have a cigarette case you carry on you? I ask because I find it such a bitch to carry a pack on me while rolling out at night. Hell, I can’t stand carrying too much shit on me besides my keys, phone and wallet. So my question is how do you operate?

And many times I have been asked where I carry everything on a night out.

Let me break it down:

Side Jacket Pockets:

I know you are supposed to carry as little as possible in all your pockets, but a G has got to smoke.

In the Left Jacket Pocket, I carry two packs of smokes. (You don’t want to run out when the girl of your dreams asked you for a cigarette).

In the Right Jacket Pocket, I carry two lighters. Typically Zippo’s filled to the brim. (Same thing, you don’t want a flint to break, or run out of fluid at The Moment of Truth, and I don’t mean that dope Guru track either.) Sometimes a Dupont Lighter or a Dunhill lighter. And a small set of keys.

Ticket Pocket:

I get almost all my Custom Suits with Ticket Pockets. I typically don’t put anything in them unless it I am going to The Fights, The Racetrack or maybe The Opera. In which case I will put my tickets in The Ticket Pocket, make sense? (Don’t laugh, a fly girl took me to The Opera earlier this year when I was in America.)

Breast Pocket of Jacket:

Only one thing should ever go here: The Pocket Square.

Inside Jacket Pockets:

Left Inside Jacket Pocket I keep my cell phone.

In the Right Inside Jacket Pocket, I keep a huge CASH Bankroll. (Disclaimer: I might not be telling the truth about the location of huge CASH Bankroll. I still have way too many Rivals out there and things can get sticky like the back of a stamp).

Inside Pen Pocket of Jacket:

I keep a pen. And no, I don’t roll Montblanc’s or expensive pens.

I do appreciate their value, but I just can’t be bothered.

Secret Pocket:

I always have a “Secret Pocket” sewn into all my Custom Suits. Where is it exactly? Do me a favor.

In here I keep (maybe) some Gold coins (in case the Apocalypse hits), Beeks or Beans (if the night calls for it), or Top Secret Documents.

Jimmy Hat Inside Jacket Pocket:

In the Jimmy Hat Pocket (not the official name by the way) I keep jimmy hats. Multiple. You never know when a swoop is going to go down (so to speak).

Pants Pockets:

Left Trouser Pocket, I keep a folded up piece of paper for notes, and backup important information in case I lose my phone (as you can see, I don’t leave anything to chance).

Right Trouser Pocket, I keep nothing. (Sometimes the hotel key card of some dope suite).

Pockets are Frogmouth in case you were wondering.

So where do I keep the heater?

Great question.

I don’t have a special pocket sewn into my jackets in case my Tailor ever gets leaned on.

So it really depends.

    I have some custom suits with inside-jacket pockets for phone, business cards, and pens- plus a hook for sunglasses (on the inside of the jacket). I’ve been known to put cigars in the pen pockets. HA! re the secret compartment for documents- not sure if I’d go out on the town with anything like that. Best to keep it as light as possible when out and about.

    Nice tip man. But don’t you worry about how carrying so much stuff in the pockets kind of messes up the lining of a custom suit? I guess to me when it’s real suit time, I keep as little as possible between me and the fabric to the custom detail really stands out. Don’t even wear boxers sometimes cause it’s just like that.
