This is one of the traditional options. On the vest bottom button is never buttoned. And the top button of the vest can unbutton when you informally, if there is such a mood. With strict format top button of the vest and all the buttons on the sleeves of the jacket (if the jacket does not blazer) should always be buttoned.

It is currently raining cats and dogs here in NYC, judging from the recent thunderclap, and the wetness of the streets. The Friday Challenge is to wear a white shirt with a sports jacket. I believe that today's attire qualifies on that score.

Sports jacket - Chester Barrie, via Austin Reed, London
Shirt, trousers, shoes and PS - BB
Bow tie - PRL
Raincoat - Burberry
Hat - Weatherproof

I agree with EliodA that a slightly looser fit would be flattering.   Again, nice fit.

This is a good illustration of what I meant by proportions.
I don't disagree that, optically, it seems off (and I think jcmeyer recognized that), though in fairness not by all that much.
Going by the traditional rules of convention, one might have thought it was fine -- no tugging at the button, shoulders do not protrude past the shoulder line, no odd creasing anywhere, sleeve hem at the right place, jacket hem at the top of the inseam AND just about evenly bisects the body.
But I think Pliny is pretty close to nailing it here. Jcmeyer's body proportions (torso, neck length, hip, arm, etc) likely demand some cheating (as to some extent we all do) beyond the normal conventions. I'm no tailor, but my gut tells me he could leave the waist suppression where it is if he cheated the shoulders and the skirt out a bit. And if you look at Vox's fits, that's exactly what you find. Notwithstanding the "rules", Vox's jackets hit just beyond his shoulders -- to my eye anyway. It works because it's balanced by the open quarters, the skirt and his build. His hemline is even just a bit below (GASP) where some say it should be, though that's masked somewhat because, unlike me, he has normal length arms.

Anyway, follow this kind of thinking -- that every single dimension of every article needs to be carefully proportioned to an individual's proportions -- to it's logical conclusion and it leads you either to the bottom of a bottle or inexorably to a bespoke tailor. I'm not sure which is worse.

That raincoat picture is so Casablanca, I love it... 

 

The only thing I would change from your outfit (if I were to copy it) are the socks. I like to go with very dark color socks when I use dark trousers.
