Brooks Brothers Brookstweed jacket and BB#1 stripe tie, L L Bean blue and white University stripe OCBD shirt and corduroy trousers, Thomas Pink pocket square, and Allen-Edmonds shoes.
Those of us who have had the good fortune to have lived most of our lives before the internet was invented can still remember when people buttoned their jackets any way they wanted.
Then the internet was invented and a gaggle of silly twits starting making up totally ridiculous "rules" about buttoning jackets.
Always remember your jackets are your property. You went to work to make the money to pay for your jackets and no one has the right to tell you how to button your jacket.
Here's yet another example from the Golden Era before the internet was invented. It's a picture I found on the PBS website in a slideshow related to the program, "The Unseen Alistair Cooke".
Here we can all see Alistair Cooke with only the bottom button buttoned on a three button jacket.

Looks great, including the fit. Suggest lengthening the sleeves a bit, to reduce amount of shirt cuff showing.
Bingo.If you look, it seems that the shirt sleeves are actually too long, rather than the suit sleeves being too short - at least as I see it.
