Single button, 2-button, 3-button … how many buttons should my suit jacket have? At the moment, hands down, its all about the 2-button jacket. The 2-button is a classic look that won’t date quickly. The 2-button complements virtually all body types, is great for those with a slightly shorter upper body.
That said, I have noticed some 3-buttons coming back in this season. It has a sort of ‘60s vibe, and is a good option for taller men as the buttons on the jacket reach higher up on the chest. The 3-button is also great with a waistcoat.
Oh … and remember no matter how many buttons you have its always just wrong to do the bottom one up, even on a single button!
