Definition: Ticket pocket

The ticket pocket is a 3rd smaller pocket usually on the wearer's righthand side, placed above the main pocket. Traditionally, there is a gap (approx 1/2" or so) between the main pocket and the ticket pocket above it.  The Thick as Thieves "house cut" ticket pocket is placed so that it overlaps the main pocket by about 1/4-3/8".  Ticket pocket can be requested either way, traditional or house cut.  Or if you prefer it can be omitted altogether with only the 2 main jacket pockets at the bottom.  The jacket show here has the traditional style ticket pocket, shown with optional detail of angled (aka hacking) pockets.
