Maybe it was the suit, but usually canali's fit me perfect. Â The top button was right below my sternum(SP?) and the button at my naval.
Okay, well, that's way too high. Â I'm talking about maybe 1/2" to 1" above the natural waist, as opposed the standard 1/2" below. Â The bottom button should be something like 4.5" (at least) below that. What you describe sounds like some of the coats one sees in really old photos of the duke of Windsor (when he was PoW). Â He appears to be wearing two-button suits with super high-button stances, with the top button as high as the top button on a three button, and the bottom button spaced far below. He would only button the bottom button. Â It looks odd and sort of antique to my eye. Â Though I had lunch the other day with a friend who gets his coats made sort of like that, and his did look smashing -- on him. Â It's an unusual thing, though. Â Personally, I would not do it for myself.
