How on earth is the dude on the right buttoning his coat? It looks like he added an extra jigger button closer to the edge...

Surely you remember that on the inside of every double breasted coat / jacket there is a button to hold it in place so it drapes correctly?

All DBs have an internal 'anchor' button - he's simply buttoning that button and leaving the outer ones unbuttoned

The jigger button shouldn't be located so close to the edge of the jacket. If that button was located where it is in the pic and he buttoned the coat properly, the whole jacket would look funny.

 

Could be the angle of the pic, but the placement of the interior button seems off.

Looks like a regular anchor button to me - doesn't look like its placed close to the edge at all.

Well, could well be the angle of the photo. Still looks off to me, but it doesn't make sense to move the jigger button just for teh sprezz, so I guess you're right.

Quite often I find when waist suppression is added to a jacket the internal button is forgotten about so might be out of place.

^ That's a good point; didn't think of that.

 

Anyways, dude should button that coat properly lol8[1].gif

He just closes it normally if he wants to. I know him, he is incredibly slim, even quite a bit slimmer than I was when I weighed 55kg; I think the leg opening on his bespoke suits is 15cm in diameter. Most young Italian men who are extremely slim and get bespoke suits made just for fun, simply get them made as slim as possible, often much slimmer than even very open minded tailors would make an 'extremely slim' suit by default.

However, knowing basic optics like from ca. middle school helps in understanding what is going on. I hope you dont panic passing the apex of a corner, because one of the two similar walls seems to become longer and the other one shorter when moving away laterally from the apex of the corner... foo.gif

Jezus, if I knew this was going to go this far I'd have STFU from the beginning. Basic optics are what led me to think it looked weird. Look at the point where the right lapel goes below the left (his actual right lapel, not the lapel that is to the right in the picture). Okay, now look at the second button on the left row. The jigger button should be placed there, but at the reverse side of the coat. Both the point where the lapels cross and the second outside button seem to be on the same optical plane. Yet, if you follow the line of the right lapel, it does not end up where the interior button should be placed.

 

My guess is that the jigger button is just being pulled out a bit due to tension and that is what distorts its position; the right lapel might be bending, too. It's cloth after all, not cardboard.

 

And I was just joking about him buttoning his coat properly; I wish I had his flair so I could do teh sprezz too. And that suit looks awesome, pagoda shoulders included.

I didnt read the slislop about why/how you imagine these things, but it's great that there is obviously a lot of thought going into Alfonso's jigger button. Will let him know.
You can say that he gets his suits made too slim, but pages of discussion about potential jigger button configurations are a bit too foo.gif (I used the foo indicator before as a hint).

And I can understand why, as this discussion alone deserves to be moved to a new thread, then banished to "dumb threads". I think I've never put so much thought into such a silly thing and I hope this Alfonso guy gets a good laugh out of this. I sure did lol8[1].gif

 

I can't really tell if his suit is too slim, because it'd need to be buttoned properly to make such an observation. I do like the styling quite a bit, though.

Stitches thinks these guys are in on the joke.
