I've been told for years when looking for a 3 button (or for that matter, a DB) by sales people and even M to M tailors that "those are out of style... it's the Ryan Seacrest Look that is selling".

Lord help me,  :-\

Had the same thing, bar the Ryan Seacrest mention, said to me on more than one occasion here, Mike. Usually in quite a sniffy manner too, I might add!

Interesting article, seems we all have Don Draper to blame!

Did you notice that they said about not doing up the top bottom (as opposed to conventional wisdom of bottom button).

I also thought interesting that 2 button jackets were made to be worn without ties...

Never being the top button. .?


When I was at school the black, 3 button, barathea was the thing but you only ever did up the top button and then had minimally one hand stuffed in the trouser pocket. .
I wont make any deals with you , I've resigned. .
I wont be pushed, filed , stamped , indexed , briefed , debriefed OR NUMBERED!

It's the other way round, you should never do the lower button up.
