Hi, first post - unbelievably, couldn't find this subject in a search...

I haven't bought new suits/jackets in years. I'm 6' 2" 185 44 yo & have liked the look of two button jackets over any others I don't really know if I'd like a double-breasted jacket, & I think three button jackets slim you down & make you look uptight...

What should be my criteria for buying? Thanks!

Try on many different styles and wear what you think you look best in. It will make you much less conscious of what you're wearing and you'll feel and appear much more comfortable wearing your clothes.
