Why Not a Panelled Lounge?

The chest dart at shoulder seam can naturally be enlarged to accomodate more athletic chests.

The cut has been made to look perfectly masculine. I also like the belted back and the patch pockets. I even like the fact that it is a button-four coat. There are concealed pockets in the panel seams and there are pleats at the back. I think the back panels are body coat styled with a side body.
Here are examples of what not to do:
In some ways, the clean fit permitted in part by the panelled construction is superb. Overall there is too much else going on. I like vertical pockets, especially when partly concealed in the panel seams, but I prefer these be at the chest level to replace the chest pocket(s) rather than being at the sides. Add in the eccentric lapels, the excessively visible button placement, and the 1970s type of upholstery styled cloth in the first one, and it is all way too much. It looks rather effeminate in a '70s way - it seems too much like something borrowed from the ladies' wardrobe. It is enough to put you off the idea of a men's panelled jacket for life, but the problems lie more in the general styling features rather than in the panel construction per se.

The women have a big bust dart and the men a small one. But with the men we displace the dart with the revers.

Note that many Norfolk style jackets permit you to conceal a panel seam at the front like this:
