Men's Suit Style & Fit

Single-Breasted – Single-breasted jackets can have one, two or three buttons. In the first case, there is no doubt which button to fasten. In the second case, as is befitting for larger sizes and patterned fabrics, only the top button is done up. There was a time, in the Anglo-Saxon world and at sports events, when both buttons were fastened. In many old photos, the Duke of Windsor and Cary Grant can be seen with both buttons done up, but this has gone out of style. Jackets with the hard three button stance are those where the lapel rises from above the buttons.
