Helden, is the buttoning point on that jacket exceptionally high? seems like it needs to move down at least an inch...

Great colors though!

Can you guys make up your mind about how high or low one's buttoning point is?

FWIW I think the buttoning point is fine. The quarters are too open though IMO. It's how the quarters are open giving way for the end of the tie to peek through that maybe throwing of the proportions. This article comes to mind.

If I recall that is heldentenor's custom suit supply jacket, yes? The buttoning point has been a question raised before on it. It is a little high for my tastes, but it doesn't look bad.

Agreed on all points--if the buttoning point were lower and the quarters consequently less open, this jacket would fit better.  This was offered to me at a quite generous rate by another SF member, and I like enough else about it that the too-high buttoning point doesn't bother me enough to replace it.  Perhaps one day.

Helden the lavender shirt is a nice touch iwith the brown.

On button point, Just wear it unbuttoned and enjoy the color pallette.

On quarters letting out the waist a touch might alleviate the open quarters slightly (you have a little x at the top button suggesting it's too suppressed at waist as is).

Other options on tie: You might try a green tie, not too bright--forest green with medallion-- also indigo or a lighter brown tie, veering to tan.

I'll see about letting it out a bit in the waist.  I love the chest and arms on this--only my Eidos fits better.

 

We really do think alike--the first time I wore this was with a medallioned forest green ancient madder from BB.  :slayer:

Lolol so much buttoning point talk. It is an interesting conversation. I took this picture the other day with my brown linen suit, and just lifted it from my phone. Not the best picture, but it is a preferable angle.

The left side of my brain says no, the right side says yes. Right side wins the brief, friendly debate and ol' lefty comes around. Then they go out for ice cream.
