I really like all your jackets, doesn't matter if its a SC or the jacket of a suit, they are really nice!

I do indeed dislike low buttoning points (and if I had to choose, I'd pick the happy medium between too low and too high, obviously), but I figure that this doesn't really apply to DB jackets (as the intersection of the cloth isn't where the jacket buttons). Still, the feel was fine (still had lots of cloth wrapped around the chest, which is why I prefer the feel...not necessarily the look...of a jacket with a high buttoning point).

 

Fair point! tongue.gif 

I can honestly say that this is your first jacket with a buttoning point other than high that I took notice of, hence my comment, but I'm not that active here...

So you do not prefer a high buttoning point, you prefer more chest covering, which you can find easily in a jacket that has a higher buttoning point. How do you feel about the buttoning point of the jacket bellow (feel free to expose your personal preference, I'm not here to advocate for any as I can, honestly, appreciate any)?

I'd definitely be happy with it. Great looking lapel roll.

 

The only nitpick I would possibly have is the patch pockets on a checked suit. However, the resolution isn't great, so I can't really tell if they are even patch pockets. If they're flap, then I can't see anything wrong at all with the jacket.

they look to be no flap, welt pockets, to me, but even if they were patch, i dont think it would be an issue. just my opinion.

In my head, no flap welt would be the best. The reason I thought patch pockets might not work is that the lines and depth created by the patch, even should the tailor properly align the pockets, might clash with the broad check.

I'd say that's a true 3 button where the top button has just been undone, so if you like it, you can do it already tongue.gif

 

Besides the roll, to check if a jacket is a true 3 button or not: look at where the "nicer" side of the top buttonhole is. If it's on the outside of the jacket, it's a true 3 button. If it's on the inside, it was conceived as a 3 roll 2. This might not always be the case, but...

 

That said, that DB is the most flattering jacket I've seen on you, and the low buttoning point probably contributes.

Button point should be exactly where your belly button is--if it's above, it's too high; if it's below, it's too low--by definition. Most of my jackets are an inch or so above my belly button, so they are high for me. I can't wait to be able to afford MTM!

The key thing is not to buy it in the first place if it doesn't fit right ;)

I like this but I fear that you will get comments like "your buttoning point is too high". The jacket have a flannell look and it is then my dream blazer. Let me know if you are a 48-50 and want to sell :-)
