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.
