The crazy manner of dressing?
I do own a four-button coat, but it has large lapels, and the top button is mounted on the lapel, such that the coat can't be buttoned all the way up. It has buttonable flap pockets on both breast and hip to boot.
I like mine very much, but do not care for the one in the OP. Mainly for the same reasons Ed mentioned. It's not, IMO, a good specimen of the form. I like GetSmart's much better.
That said, there is an argument to be made for the legitimacy of the four-button coat in the traditional canon. They're little seen today, but Brooks used to sell them, back when Brooks was Brooks. They're something of a remnant of the early days of the 20th century, when what was correct was less limited than it is now.
