I really like this suit, VG. It's a very nice bespoke look and you appear to be very comfortable in it. I think the button stance is perfect and sets the suit apart just a tiny bit from what we expect to see. I would take Manton's "old world" comment as a prime example of praising with faint damnation. As others have pointed out, the simple beautiful grey is a great foil for accessories. Thanks for the pictures.
Thanks, gents, for all the good words and thoughtful advice. I've generally been pleased with the button stance of the two double-breasted Chans I have, perhaps because it is so "old world," hearkening to sartorial touchstones for which I have something of a soft spot. Still, the majority opinion has given me a small pause, and I may try and shake things up on my next DB Chan order, which may be awhile, as I'm planning to order at least two SB in the next year.
