There are some jackets that I have a 3 roll 2...the lapel rolls enough naturally that I've had it lightly pressed into a 3r2. Other jackets have flat lapels and so I fasten the top button. I like the way it looks and it just looks sloppy otherwise.

 

I would really like to hear the aesthetic analysis behind avoiding that top button. It doesn't work for all body types, but I'm 6 feet with shoes and have the right torso shape.

It looks uptight to me. There's no ease to it. You can't unbutton it to sit down easily, either.

Claghorn, if you like the hard three, you should wear it.

Deets on the tie?

Oh yeah, I definitely intend to. If had an infinite budget, I'd have the same staple jackets with a 2, 3r2 and a 3 just so I can wear what I want to suit (haha) my moods. I'm just trying to figure out if there is more than "it isn't in fashion" at play here. I get the uptightness (a nice juxtaposition with a country jacket imo). With bigger knots or wider ties, it'll diminish the presence of the shirt. Shorter or stouter people it'll look awkward because of all the cloth.

 

Basically, I get the subjective preference against it. Is their an "objective" (a la Foo) objection to it (other than those above)?

Thanks a lot guys, appreciate it bigstar[1].gif

 

I received the suit yesterday and was very pleased. I had asked for a copy of a Corneliani suit except for the lapel and notch that are inspired from the measurements of a David Diagne MTM suit (9cm width and small-angle-notch inspired by CAMPS)

Claghorn considering everyone and their monkey has so much to say, I thought I would too, so....

 

IMHO This particular jacket looks much better with both buttons fastened than it would with just the middle one. If both are buttoned it portrays the idea of intention, with middle only it would look more like exasperation or can't be bothered, or don't care. Three buttons done, little miss priss.

 

IMHO Pocket Square, I would have gone with white linen with orange or brown edging, edges up and out. 

 

IMHO Tie, whatever knot, but that knot to have more heft, slightly wider tie would have been better. Wider tie would of course also give the knot more length.

 

Example of tie knot. I am sure OP will not mind.

 

 

400

 

Example of PS fold.

I can´t decide whether I like the tie or not. It´s a kind of raw silk with a rough texture.

Let me have your thoughts.

Of course, and Kent Wang boxers. But I didn't list them since they are not shown.

The 3Bs that HRH and Vox are wearing would look alright with the top buttoned, but your buttoning point is at least an inch higher than those. So regardless if you button yours or not, it looks unflattering since it makes the lapel too short and it looks like your torso is wrapped up like a sausage.
