Yes, I have noticed this in Manhattans better shops as well. I distinctly recall a salesman at Gucci (what? they have smaller sizes when it comes to their driving loafers...they are made by Sergio Rossi, at least that's something, right? Right?) that wore a black suit (please don't start) had 3 buttons undone. It's a nifty look, but not endearing. Jon.I look to the clothing greats, such as the Duke, Astaire, Gary Cooper, and Adolphe Menjou. None of them left open a sleeve button. A few contemporary guys that I respect keep all buttons closed. I saw Cary Grant in "People Will Talk" hold a telephone receiver which showed that the second button was left undone. I sometimes see some gents in the 57th St. area with two undone buttons. This is the sign of a show-off who typically is a salesman at one of the better stores.
