Is this the correct term for the 3 button suit where the lapel stops at the top button? this style was so popular several years back with the 2 button and the 3 roll 2 being a bit more dated looking. the 3 button roll 3 was known to be more modern and lifts the chest up.

but now i see a prevalence of 2 button and 3 roll 2 and the look has a graceful and understated look. and is infused into the fashion world as well.

when i see a 3 button to roll 3 suit now all i can think of is macy's kenneth cole, ted baker Endurance, and hugo boss.

should we still keep those styled suits in our closet , perhaps the style will cyclically return again into fashion?

A 3 soft roll to 3 is iconic, and if not fashionable, so much the better.

The kind of 3 button where pressing machines hammered and tonged a severe crease into the top button, well, that always was f*cked.

So, can this be rolled to a 3/2.5? Or do I trash it?

^^^looks good to me but then again I always thought the 3/3 was classic, just not so good for shorter fellows like myself.

2 or 3 buttons will always be classic. Its like a captoe vs a wingtip. Even if tastes phase in and out, I don't see jackets with 3 buttons ever going extinct.

That said, there were way too many suits circa 1999 with the Steve Harvey crease

LOL @ translating baggy jeans to baggy suit pants. It doesn't work.
