Nino Corvato. A phenomenally talented tailor. But he does have some stylisitc eccentricities. Like keyhole buttonholes on lapes. And making the bottom two rows of buttons on the front of a DB coat closer together than the top two. But I had not noticed the ones you mention.By the way, do we know who makes his suits?
maybe he had the middle buttons unbuttoned?I understand it is technically incorrect, and has been discussed at great length, but I prefer overlapping buttons (4 of them).
Edit: The other day we had a discussion about the distance between the bottom of the sleeve and the buttons. That night, I saw David Letterman wearing a charcoal pinstripe, peak-lapel two button suit, with 2 to 2.5 inches between the buttons and the end of the sleeve. Obviously, David Letterman is not to be followed for his sartorial sense. By the way, do we know who makes his suits?
Two-buttons cuffs with some spacing in between the buttons do look quite nice with more casual coats such as ones in tweed. In fact, one could do a single button cuff with a tweed with a slightly larger button than usual or a two button cuff with some spacing. I do agree that spacing looks wierd with three- or four-button cuffs on city suits.worst cardinal sin in the "book of sleeve buttons" is to space buttons apart-- I think it is a telltale sign of a tailor that doesn't know his trade.

Take this with a grain of salt; I'm sort of a functional-sleeve-button fanatic.
True enough. They should be exactly one button-diameter apart (so that if there were a third button there, all three would kiss).Two-buttons cuffs with some spacing in between the buttons do look quite nice with more casual coats such as ones in tweed.
