5 button sleeves?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I came across a chester barrie suit on ebay today (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...970805056&rd=1) that has a 5 button sleeve. How do you think this will look? WIll it make me look shorter? Will the suit look off? Or should i not worry about it?

that's unusual.  i've seen 2, 3, and 4 buttons before, but not 5.  you really need to get some pictures....

John Kerry wore one of those. If you want to look like John Kerry, wear that suit.

Gucci does 5-button sleeves.  I've also seen it on Trend Corneliani (haven't seen it on the main line, but that doesn't mean they don't do it). It won't make you look shorter, but it could elicit remarks like "damn, that's a lot of buttons."

I think some Paul Smith suits do them too.

To complement his 3 button T & A shirt cuffs?

As mentioned, Paul Smith does the 5 buttons thing on the London line. Doesn't shock me. I'drather have 5 than 3 which looks a bit casual to me. Luc

Hmm.... now if you have 5 buttons, how many would you leave unbuttoned? (If that's your habit of leaving sleeve buttons opened.)

Just the uppermost one, so that your cuff will look like a normal one.
