Given that you know what a topit is, why don't you just experiment? Get some cloth, thread, and a needle, and try various shapes that help you in case you ever miss with your current topit. And once you've got it right, make it accessible from your pocket, and voila.

I believe the Cloutier pattern does not have a 'back stop', where the Ammar one does. I personally like that feature of the Ammar version. It makes me feel a little more confident-- I feel like I can tell more easily when the object lands in the topit. The last Jay Scott Berry one that I saw goes even further to attach the topit to your shirt so that there's even more security. The downside there is that you'd need to do a little sewing on the shirts you wear too.

I've been using the Ammar topit. Then recently I saw the Jay Scott Berry topit and it has some significant design improvements.

I purchased the Ammar pattern some years ago and have all my suits and sport jackets made with the topit device. I have been having suits and shirts made to measure for me for about 20 years now from a variety of fabrics in Hong Kong. My tailor visits the US about four times a year in several cities. His associate visits several other cities. I can't afford the very top of the line or the most exclusive fabrics, but I have about a dozen great suits from him with Michael Ammar's topit in eight of them.

I have my cuffs made deep and thick enough to conceal half dollars. I have my shirts all made with two breast pockets, 3-1/2 inch button down collars and my choice of cuff design. My style is straight timeless Brooks Brothers suits, but Vijay can make anything with any of thousands of fabrics, any special features you want, special pockets, tubes, multiple coin pockets in the pants or jackets, or he can copy something you have (for women too) exactly in any other fabric you like. I have a barrel chest and a Brian Denehy-type body. I could never get store-bought shirts to fit me right. After I got made-to-measure shirts, I could wear bow ties without my buttons straining. Became my new trademark. Women love bow ties, I can tell you.

There is nothing quite so confidence building as a suit made just for you from Hong Kong. Vijay is my age and also a dear friend. Check him out if there is a visit near you.

Just my two cents, it's not a pattern but the topit from Edouard Boulanger has a great improve IMO. The system to take back the object is totally new.
