I hate running out of clean shirts due to lack of time to do laundry. This is all I had...
Sorry for the overexposed close-up picture, but the camera doesn't like my dark blazer. This was the lowest exposure.
What are your thoughts on removing the top "vestigial" buttons? Since the jacket has a quite high button stance, it may work.
Leave the jacket as it is. The proportions are fine the way that they are, and the two "vestigial" buttons are an integral part of the proportions.
