Yeah, gotta button it. Where's it tight? Might be possible for a tailor to let it out.

You should sugest me to visit a gym not the tailor


Here is buttoned, if i sit on a chair the button might kill somebody standing in front of me.

Agnelli often wore his DBs unbuttoned, but in your case it shows that it's too tight.

You can wear it unbuttoned but there are better ways of putting it out of its misery. I assume it is second or more hand?

3 options:

1- Lose weight around gut,
2- Get bigger jacket,
3- Get an assistant to help you do a tug of war on the jacket. With a bit of luck it will stretch.

Only kidding on point 3.

+1 and maybe move the button in the meantime. You can see it's pulling, right?
