I'd love to see how it "really should" fit. smile.gif

I bet you'd find loads from the golden age of the three button - about 1960-1965. Terence Stamp? Michael Caine? (he has a nice suit on when he gets out of prison n 'The Italian Job' which was 1969), Belmondo, Delon, Steve Marriott? Bowie? Jagger? Watts?

I was just watching The Italian Job today. The suit he walks out of prison in is very early '60s, and a two-button, but almost immediately afterwards there's a great scene of him buying a new suit from Douglas Hayward (who made the suits). That one (which has the button stance in question) shows up another scene or two later. Much later, immediately before the chase scene at the end, he's in a cream wool suit with the same button stance.
