Buttoned unless it's a 3-piece SB.

If you wear 3-pc singlebreasteds, as you do in your avatar, then it is neither traditional nor untraditional to button or unbutton the coat when standing. It is simply a matter of personal preference. A thousand and one vintage fashion illustrations will bear this out. My avatar man has his coat buttoned and he's no tradition-bound burgermeister, he's a louche wastrel.

Only someone really uptight would button the jacket of a three piece suit. Maybe if it was very windy outside but it's along the lines of both belt AND suspenders.

Actually it's the polar opposite of belt with suspenders. That just looks ugly, whereas the other look is sometimes sublime, especially if it's a contrasting waistcoat.

Absent exigent circumstances, buttoning the jacket of a 3pc suit is neurotic, nerdy, stiff and lower class.

Then, to varying degrees, I claim them all!

Well, it's never too late to correct this...unless you feel that people have photos. Hey, I'm not coming up with this on my own. The reaction is like the one with that kid that used to have the iron creased jeans and couldn't sit down on the ground.

I say buttoned on a correctly fitting jacket. Some sportscoats can look good unbuttoned. If they do though they're probably too tight to button up without pulling anyway.

With the ensemble and photos provided, I prefer the look of the buttoned hands down. However, being in Texas I fully understand the heat and humidity and say you have to go unbuttoned when not directly under air conditioning.

Not in the world of properly tailored clothing.
