The Right Way To Button Up Everything In Your Wardrobe (Men style)

by - 7:09 AM

Although it looks so simple but nowhere in men wears has many trip wears as how you fasten your clothes. When you get it wrong then you like a jerk, get it right you look awesome. Everything you wear with button has right way and wrong way.

Single button:  fasten it the second you stand up; unbutton it when you sit down. Then find a style of jacket that doesn’t make you look like a wedding singer or old charge and bail lawyer.

Two Button:   This is a bit complex. Treat the top button like a single button. Ignore its companion. Modern jackets are designed to flare out at your hips. Double buttoning is not, as some men think, smart it kills your jackets silhouette, rumples the fabric. Once again unbutton when you sit down.
Three Button:  Again the bottom button is a trap. Cast it from your mind. The middle button always fastens when you’re stood up. The one above is optional. You can close it to stave off a chill or steer your look or more professional. If you don’t want to look square leave it open, but never have it fastened when its downstairs neighbor isn’t.
Four Button: it’s a beet Beatles cover band.  Lol!
Leave the button open and just make sure your waistcoat still covers your short.
Four button: kudos for your punchy tailoring choice. Fasten the top button if you’re   Prince Charles; feel free to do up the bottom button too. Otherwise leave it be and don’t forget the internal button that keeps the fabric underneath from rumpling.
Ignore the top, close the middle, let your position in line for the throne dictate the bottom.                  
Bespoke suits have always had functioning cuff buttons, a legacy from military surgeons who didn’t want to spoil their suits with all that blood. Off-the-rack tailoring didn’t –no one ever uses them, after all, and it’s cheaper to create fake ones.
Some tailors advise their clients to leave the last button open, to prove just how fancy their suits are. If you listen to them, then your neediness negates any style points.
With a jacket- if you’re wearing a tie, then do up every button, you’re not at school. If not, the best look with a jacket is to keep them buttoned anyway. An open neck is the uniform of campaigning politicians. Note if you’re wearing a blazer with non matching trousers unbuttoned the collar to make it look casual.
Without a jacket: The air tie still flies, but feel free to loosen up, just make sure to pop both to buttons or your collar will sit near your ears instead of on your neck.
