    J Crew sweater blazer chest pocket below the nipple line

    This sweater blazer that's been posted on the main site:

    https://www.jcrew.com/p/mens_feature...73006d0a24060d

    Got mine in the mail today and love it other than the fact that...breast pocket is below my nipple. Just feels a bit weird. Is that weird to anyone else?

    That's what I hate about that sweater Blazer, too. I would have gotten it otherwise. It looks really bad, like you're milking your teet into the pocket or something.

    Wow you're right. How did JCrew of all places mess that up? They're usually really good about not screwing up those kinds of things.

    Anyway, Banana Republic has basically the same design on sale. Saw it in person the other day. Maybe they didn't mess that up.

    ... which has a very different button stance (higher, wider spaced) and more minimalist details (the jcrew model has stitching around all the edges and a back seam), so I wouldn't call it "basically the same design" aside from the fact they're both cardigans with blazer-like lapels, or if you just meant they both have ridiculously short chopped tails.

    I have this exact sweater blazer. When I bought it I really wanted to hate it but not gonna lie its got some decent weight to it and makes a great piece for wearing around our Chicago office. In regards to the chest pocket, I don't think anyone is going to notice nor care about its placement. After all its a sweater blazer and I don't think anyone will look at it as a formal piece.

    Well, you're 100% wrong about nobody noticing/caring about the pocket placement. The whole reason for this particular thread was because somebody noticed and cared (several somebodies).

    The pocket placement isn't a formality issue, but a proportions/location issue. It really, really should be placed higher. But if you don't mind, more power to you, as the rest of that sweater blazer looks awesome.
