Hey yall,

Havent seen anybody talk about this particular detail of men's sartorial excellence but for those of you who wear 3 pc suits, how many of the waistcoat buttons should show when the jacket is buttoned? Do you think 1 or 2 is appropriate and why? To me, 2 seems to be too much because now you have 4 buttons (including 2 from the jacket) running down your torso which creates this weird symmetry. Thoughts?

I personally don't button my jacket when wearing a waistcoat.
