I saw a lot of this in Jil Sander designs:

maybe not the ideal design but just to get the idea of what style I'm referring to.
personally I really like the look; I think it's very modern and elegant- but is it considered something of a faux pas? I suppose this won't do in a more formal setting but how about business and casual?

I searched the forums but I can't seem to nail down any discussion for this; maybe I missed the correct term (not a native English speaker).

Cheers!

It's called fashion.

The hidden button / fly-front style is traditional for single-breasted overcoats, but never for sportcoats or suits. You can base your judgment on whether or not that matters to you.
