I need to get some minor alternations done and my tailor said that if I wanted, he could easily make it a "normal" 1-button front, albeit with a higher button stance. I wasn't sure if I should take him up on his offer and told him to hold off with the change until I got back to him.
Does anyone have a tux with this type of front...do you consider it a good/ok look? From the little bit I could find online about the subject, it seems to be a more traditional feature that isn't seen very often these days.
I'm a bit concerned that if I stick with the link front and ever wear my jacket unbuttoned (gasp!) then I'll have a stupid little button dangling around. Am I being ridiculous or will this actually look noticeably sloppy?
Never unbuttoning my tux (as some will suggest) isn't realistic given the types of black-tie events I go to.
Curious if others have thoughts on what I should do or any opinions on the look of a linked button vs. a normal button?
