A thread to post about the little details that make a piece of clothing decent.
I love the little stash pocket on the rear pocket in visvim fluxus - it's not that useful but it makes a really nice and unique fading point in the denim.
Big fan of whenever trousers have a coin pocket that's wide enough to fit your phone in - so it doesn't bounce around in a big pocket or fall all the way down.

Think every jacket should come with a type of sling to go over your shoulder. Nike used to have this on their nikelab stuff and its great not having to stuff it in your bag.
Also think every jacket that has patch pockets should have in seam ones underneath as a place to put your hands.
While I had an Oyster i really liked how sophnet jackets have a little zip pocket in the sleeve for that to go in so you could tap without taking it out.

like it when t-shirts and knits have a split side seam so thhey don't bunch up when you're sitting down. Any jacket that has side zips at the hem also a big win.
Also like it when there's a magnetised button on pocket flaps or in lieu of traditional buttons, stone island shadow project used to do this.
On that point big of fan of when any big hitter item is also 'modular' - i never end up completing a set but i do appreciate when a liner or scarf or whatever can button in properly to another item.

I really like 2 way zips on coats/jackets.
I like wearing a lot of my jackets zipped at the top but open slightly towards the bottom.

+1 on 2 way zips
Pockets within pockets are a big favourite of mine, love that you can put airpods or keys in a pocket without the fear of them falling out.
Another pocket one is the hidden coin pocket on some trousers. Great to for keys or other bits
