I am in the process of having a suit made MTM or bespoke but I have a hard time figuring out the details
I am confident I want a single breast (double breast a bit too formal at my work) and peak lapels (as most of my over suits are notch). I find the houndstooth flannel cloth to be really nice (see pic)
However, I have a harder time figuring out how many buttons I should go for.. I would hopefully like to use the jacket separately in some occasion
- initially I wanted to go for one (thinking jacket and huntsman in my mind)
- recently, I am much more leaning towards 2 or 3 (with one hidden) button
I was told 3 buttons is more old school and I thought it might be nice and different to go for it
The tailor I think is very good and I am confident he will have the proportions right so that my "experiments" wont look too odd..
Do you have any advice on the buttons, cloth (brownish/greyish) or some pics of models that could help me figure this out ?
Thanks all for the help !
