I have this vintage Henry Poole waistcoat (part of a three-piece) from the mid-1980s with five buttonable buttons and a sixth impossible to button button, as it is stitched on the diagonal "quarters". The opposing side does have a working buttonhole. The other waistcoat I own has five buttons, all buttonable. Should I then leave the bottom button unbuttoned? Is five the ideal number of buttonable buttons? Is an extra impossible button preferable?
