In the last 5+ years, the 3-button suit has become by far the most common style of men's suit, even though 10 or 15 years ago it was a relative rarity in good American men's stores. It seems as if stores have carried almost nothing but 3-button suits the last few years. This season for the first time in a few years, I have been noticing the reemergence of the 2-button on the racks. I saw quite a few yesterday while shopping at the Bergdorf's Men's Store. I hope that the 3-button is not on its way out to be remembered a decade or so from now as something emblematic of the late 1990's/early 2000's because: A) I feel like I look better in 3-button suits and B) because I have bought nothing but 3-button suits the last four or five years. Is the 3-button suit goiing to begin to look "yesterday"?
