I'm not certain precisely where I want it to be if the jacket is 3 rolled to 2.5. I'd like to be *able* to button the top button but also to not, and don't want the button hole to be visible when it's buttoned to 2 (i.e. I want it rolled under the lapel).
If this refers to the opening of the jacket at the chest, I'm considering adding a vest to go with the suit (not to be worn normally but as an option). If so, I'll do a pretty high closure on the vest so it could be seen above the 2.5 roll. With the 3rd button closed, I wouldn't wear the vest. How specific should I be about this?
Both the jacket pockets and the rear pockets on the trousers can be finished as besom. It is not necessary to have flaps on either. However, if you do put flaps on the jacket, this would allow them to be worn tucked inside the pocket. I would not recommend a flap on the trousers.
The "open quarters" referrence is to the cut of the front opening of the skirt of the jacket. Think of how you want to shape the curved line on each side of the front opening.
