I have never liked the look or feel of a three-piece suit with the jacket buttoned.

Unbuttoned when standing up? Sure, if the jacket doesn't fit, why bother? But if it fits great it would be a shame not to show it.

I.e, unbuttoned standing up is for those whose jackets don't fit, or those who don't have the minerals to look their best.

I only have 2 button suits. Tend to wear it buttoned up on the way into and out of work (save for when on the Tube and stretching one arm horizontally/vertically to grab a railing).

 

When in the office (where not everyone wears a tie these days), it's off 90% of the time but when worn, I often have it deliberately unbuttoned as it seems ever slightly too stiff/formal in that setting when done up.

I remember reading this too. If I ever meet him I may feel forced to reciprocate and button up a few of his shirt buttons.
