My first thrift fit pic (I was hoping for better, but this will do). From a trip to the Met opera this weekend just before Sandy. I know the pants are a little long and everything's just a little off fit-wise (and wrinkly and misplaced after squirming around for 3 hrs), but I couldn't bring myself to spend money to lengthen the jacket and sleeves as I discovered significant stains on the jacket after I bought it (hence the odd buttoning...). Anyway, way too much explanation.
I'm not sure whether this was discussed or if you mean this when you say "odd buttoning," but that jacket is buttoned the opposite direction. It should be left over right.
