I got a custom made suit made in China - single breasted, 2 button. The tailor made the distance between the buttons 12 cm. It looks weird to me. I measured my other American-bought jackets and the button distance measures 9 cm. Is there a standard measurement for the distance between jacket buttons? If I were to get a 3 button suit made, would the distance be the same as the 2 button suit (9cm) or less (maybe 7.5 cm)? FYI, I'm a pretty standard fellow at 5'8" 160 lbs.
