    I'm still quite not sure about where to place the waist button on a suit jacket, from a design point of view. I know Flusser talks about it in his books, that it's 1/2 of an inch below the "natural waist" or whatever. I try doing what he writes, which is to look for the narrowest part of my torso and go a little downwards from there, but according to that my natural waist would be a couple of inches above my belly button. Maybe I'm abnormal? Maybe I just have a weird waist? Maybe I'm one of the few who can wear a high two-buttoned jacket and not look silly doing it?
