Maybe one of the British members can answer this: Why do many, and I mean many, Brits button the bottom suit jacket? Note that this isn't the typically American mistake of buttoning all the jacket buttons; they'll button only the bottom of a 2-button jacket, or the bottom two of a 3-button. It doesn't matter if the jacket's from a suit or a sport coat, or if it's unvented/single-/side-vented. This was really perplexing when I was over there.
