Pics of 3-roll-2.5 jackets

Can anyone point me to some good pictures of jackets with a 3-roll-2.5 button stance and relatively open front quarters? I've searched the archives and checked the stock of some higher-end ebay sellers but not found anything that is photographed particularly well. I'm looking for a photo that I can use as an illustration for my next Chan jacket.

Thanks,

dan

not really. it looks like it wants to be buttoned as opposed to matt's and the attolinis.

or we could call it a 3 roll to 3
(it`s hard to tell though, as the differences between 2.5, 2, etc. are very small)

IMO, 3-roll-2.5 looks "cooler" than 3-roll-2; 3-roll-2 looks too "artificial" to me. However, what is considered to be "most elegant"? And most suitable for a tall person?

I don't think that either is correct. I like the look of a long roll. It just looks richer to me, but others disagree.

But if you just wish a long roll, why not go for a two-button jacket? (I do not question what you say, I am just interested in finding out more about this; until very recently I didn't even know that the 3-roll-2.5/2 concept existed, this is all very new to me and I want to give my tailor the right instructions next time I have a jacket made; I had a normal 3-button one done recently and I think it would have been much nicer if it had been more like 3-roll-2.5 or maybe even 3-roll-2)

The other option is a single button which I'm doing with peak lapels for the first of my new bespoke jackets.
