...On the other hand, I think the low button stance is actually good. The top button on a two-button jacket hits right at my natural waist, about 1.5-2" above my belly button. The button stance is higher on a lot of trendy labels, but I don't like it higher for three reasons: (1) it eliminates the flattering V-shape the jacket should give my torso; (2) it causes the quarters to flare open; and (3) on a slim-fitting jacket, it makes it too tight across my chest (which, unlike my waist, expands when I breathe).
Completely agree with both of you here. Lower button-stance FTW
