BD with FC -- also favored by Charlie Wilson, yes?

Both a sartorial as well as ideological hero of mine: Helmut Schmidt frequently seen with a buttoned jacket while seated.

Rule is: always leave DB buttoned when seated, SB is optional but most prefer to unbutton.

yes, if the jacket does not fit and you are spread eagle, it will look like shit. In your Schmidt pic, he looks great and composed.

I agree with you.

Dressing for TV has its own requirements, like:

"If you are a man with even an inch of fat on your waist or are wearing a suit that isn’t 100% perfectly tailored, then keep your jacket buttoned.
This will keep your tie in place, your suit symmetrical, minimize your gut and show less of your light colored shirt."

As stated here

That pocket square fold is a bit strange to my eyes. Was it an era thing?

I seem to remember seeing something about that fold previously on the forum. I think it was Astaire who had a fold like that.

Are you suggesting this is bad? I like it; and, as if you couldn't guess that I'd have an example at hand, it's straight out of AA/Esky around the same time:

Personally, I don't like it.

Also, your illustration is a knit polo.
