    The writer thinks it time replace the glossy leather jacket with a one button coat. But only if have a 99% fat free body of a 23 year old.

    Well, I do have an Armani one button sportscoat and a one snap leather Armani overcoat but I've never had the fat free body of a 23 year old.

    Maybe I'll wear the one button tomorrow--maybe not.

    Blech. If Huntsman wants to give me a suit with a one-button coat, fine. Otherwise, I am not interested in what passes for "fashion" among these designers.

    Ah. Huntsman suuuuiit.... mmmm. I agree. As far as I'm concerned, Huntsman one button is the only 'one' in which I'm interested. However, Nick Hart's collection at BG has a one button that is well cut. Unfortunately, it is very overstyled (leather trim, etc.), as well as being single vented. Ahhh, but it is peak lapel.

    I ordered a one button suit from Darren a couple months back--a first for me since my closet is full of three buttons. We'll see how it comes out. Maybe I'll post pictures.
