I can't figure out what 贴 is doing here:

中国革命先行者孙中山综合了西式服装与中式服装的特点,设计出了一种直翻领有袋盖的四贴袋男用套装,定名为中山装,此后几十年,中山装大为流行,成为中国男子喜欢的标准服装。

‘四贴袋‘ is 贴 a 量词 here?

  • dict.cn: 贴袋 patch pocket,it may be that this functions as a 准量词,thus does not require an additional 量词 – user6065 Aug 13 '15 at 23:34
  • Aha, so it's a pocket sewn onto the outside of the suit? – Pedroski Aug 14 '15 at 0:17

贴 in 四贴袋 is not measure word but adjective, meaning pasted. It describes the appearance of the pocket is like it's pasted/patched on the suit.

When 贴袋 is used as noun, you can use any measure word that's applicable to a pocket. E.g.

这件衣服上有四贴袋。

But in your example, 四贴袋 is noun-as-adjective (数词+名词短语做定语), in which situation there should not be measure words in between, and strictly speaking, 四 here is not nominal number four but tuple nomenclature quad. Some other examples:

三轮车 three-wheel(ed) vehicle

多功能全自动洗衣机 multi-function automatic washing machine

四贴袋男用套装 four/quad-patch pocket men's suit

  • The sense of this is 'pockets that are sewn onto the suit' rather than integrated into the suit with just a little flap to cover the slit where the pocket is? You can see the pocket and the stitching? 有袋盖 = has pocket flaps ?? – Pedroski Aug 14 '15 at 1:46

  • @user6065 Those are not 定语 (attributive modifier)... – NS.X. Aug 14 '15 at 6:34
