1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Leave it as it is. Just get a better shirt with French cuffs and ball out.

    Oh and I forgot to ask; why shouldn't the bottom button be buttoned?

    Thanks in advance

    It's not meant to be buttoned.

    If you take a look at your first set of pictures where it's buttoned, you can see in the second shot (even though the picture is blurry) that the bottom of your coat is strained.

    In your second set of pictures where you leave it unbuttoned, you can see in the first picture the coat opens up at the bottom--that's how it's supposed to look.

    It's a sartorial rule. One that you don't break.

    Shoulders have divots and there's something going on in the back of the trousers.

    Update: I just called Dave's tailor and they are willing to pay for shipping back and forth to correct the suit for me which is kinda good [​IMG]
