I am not sure about a few details so I would appreciate your advices on these points:
- Edge stitching on the jacket: I was not sure and I was advised not to have this stitching around the edge of the jackets. I would like to understand what the rationale is about that.
- Slanted side pockets on the trousers. I thought that straight pockets looked nicer but was strongly advised to go with slanted pocket mostly for convenience, that is to be able to put my hands in my pockets more easily.
- Pockets on the back of the trousers. I was thinking about two pockets, one with a flap, the second without but was advised not to have a flap on any of the back pockets because it could interfere with the jacket.
- Waist: I am thinking about trousers without belt loops but with button braces and buckle side adjusters. This way, the trousers can be worn with or without braces--by tightening the side adjuster where there are no braces.
