Open quarters on a 3 button...

I usually wear 3 button jackets and am lately becoming more fond of jackets w/more open quarters. It seems open quarters are more natural with a one button jacket (fluid curve from the button down to the bottom of the quarter) vs. 3 button (it appears more "vertically" oriented with less fluidity & less open).

Does anyone have any pictures of 3 button jackets with nice examples of properly cut open quarters? Or, am I off target thinking that a 3b can have nice open quarters?
