button bottom only on a two button suit?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

Does anyone do this to be different.  It seems that this is a faux pas in most peoples eyes, but I'm wondering if in our modern world it could be acceptable?

Jackets are cut to have the middle button done and the lower button undone. Not buttoning in that fashion will spoil the lines of the jacket, and screw up the proportions. It looks bad visually, and you'll look like the moron who doesn't know how to button his jacket.

Might as well wear your pants backwards if you want to be a rebel just for the sake of it.

In my opinion, this would only be accepetable if you specifically get a bespoke a jacket that's supposed to be buttoned like that. Otherwise, lolno.

That's nothing. I saw a guy walking around the other day with only the bottom button done on a three button suit.

what if the jacket's button stance is too high... and the jacket actually does look better with only the bottom button done?
i have one jacket like that ... but i can't bring myself to wear it with the bottom button done only for fear of the style police

Until designers start designing it so that the last button will enable the jacket to have a better looking silhouette, I don't think it'll be acceptable.

Who knows, maybe a revolutionary Thom Browne type of figure will come into the picture and make it acceptable for everyone one day.

Only if the ginger from the Armoury starts doing it. Then we will know it is acceptable.

The same happens to me

 

I have a cord jacket that I wear with lapel turned up and it fits better with only the bottom button done

 

 

"the style police"  hahahaha! that's a good one

Then it doesn't fit.

Every now and then, you see people in England doing this. I have no idea why as it looks ridiculous.

Doesn't fit. Quit trying to make this a thing, no matter how many times you post asking about this, the answer is the same--the jacket is way too small.

You can wear it in whatever style you like but if it does not fit with just the top button closed it does not fit right.

Trying exercising and losing weight, maybe then you can button the top button.

According to my knowledgeable friend, you meant to button all buttons for a horse riding balzer or paddock suit, in both case they are usually button 2 coat.
