Dear buttonmovers: no, that won't work. Â When unbuttoned, the buttons are level. Â The jacket pulls the button up with it when buttoned.
I know what you mean, but I still think if the buttons were moved a bit it would line up better. It would also necessarily make the waist a bit bigger, and the buttons might not line up with the pockets exactly the same, but it would be less noticeable than the pinstripe problem. What happens if you button the bottom one as well? And anyway, for crying out loud, now I want to bill the dumbasses who made this thing for my time and limited brainpower trying to figure it out. Dammit, get your money back or something.
