All my suit jackets have 2 buttons on each sleeve. In fact, they even have 4.

depending on how the sleeves are done. 2 working buttons (or faux working buttons) looks better than just sewing 2 buttons onto jacket sleeves.

1960's clothing, of which I have much (being a child of that era), mostly had two quite-far-apart buttons per sleeve.
