Peak Lapels + 1 Button Question

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

A single-breasted jacket with peak lapels and one button.

Is this combination strictly black tie? Or is a fold-down shirt collar, necktie and lighter jacket colour enough to make it informal (as opposed to casual)?

I have a brown-and-grey bird's-eye suit in that configuration. A change of pace suit, by my lights, formality would depend on the color, fabric, and accessories.

No - however dreadful it looks.

I disagree with GBR, as does Huntsman (these are pulled from their website). Judge for yourself.

All the above suits would look far nicer with two buttons, imo.

Not really CBD, but Phineas Cole usually has a bunch of 'em too.

The buttoning stance should be the same for a one button suit or two button suit. I don't really understand how adding an additional button that you never button makes a huge difference in how an outfit is viewed. I do think that the peak lapels are much more obvious. That said, a peak lapel one button suit could be a lovely choice in a nice navy color to wear to things like weddings and evening events that are just shy of black tie. I wouldn't try to make it work with a button down color or light jacket, though.
