However, last time I was at Marshall Field's, they had a 3-button Hugo Boss suit on a mannequin that had all three buttons buttoned. Â My sartorial side made me walk over and unbutton the bottom, and the salesman flashed me a look to kill. But from everything I've heard, you can button the top, the middle, or both. Â Never the last.
I agree. Â I want to do the same thing when I am invited to special alumni events at my fraternity and I see the younger members doing this with 2 button suits Â
. Maybe someday they will learn because I get tired of arguing with them. Â When I bought my first suit Dad made sure to tell me, "Never button the bottom button." Â Stuck with me ever since. And I feel that goes for all suits with 2 buttons on up. Â Kevin
