Is the line of the lapel the whole though? It's part of the overall jacket. There is something about the button and hole, even if you don't quite see them. There is an elegance there, that I just can't see in a two button. One button, sure. That has a boldness that is it's own justification.I've got a number of two button jackets in my closet, but I can't see ever buying another, as much as I hate to say never.
