    Can someone explain the rules of how to make a suit's quarters look good? i am trying out a new tailor. is it supposed to open as much as the opening above the buttoned button?

    Need more information first.... Pictures of yourself would help.

    There are no "rules" for these kinds of things being that such details are always pegged to the other details of the fit.

    Substantially a matter of your preference and discussion with your tailor. NB this is more for bespoke than lower forms of MTM where such matters may be fixed or beyond the wit of those involved.
