The Rules of Suit Jacket Buttoning Every Gentleman Needs To Know

Let’s have that conversation about jackets… and how to button them up.

Just looking at a jacket, you can observe that there are buttons, and there are holes intended for each one. If you decide you want to wear that jacket, your first thoughts would be to put it on, then fasten the buttons.

Simple, right?

At first, it may look that way, but the truth is, there are rules to be followed.

Here are two reasons why we need to follow them.

#1. You send out the message that you pay attention to details.

Those who violate these simple rules will unwittingly broadcast to the world that they don’t wear a suit regularly. By knowing these rules and following them, you’ll be classified as part of men’s elite. You’ll belong to the “in-the-know” group.

#2. Almost every time, following these simple rules will make a man look better in a suit.

A buttoned suit when standing cuts a cleaner silhouette. Once seated, though, unbutton your jacket. This allows you to sit more comfortably. Add to that, it will prevent wrinkles and button popping.

    Double-Breasted Jackets

    Double-breasted jackets should always be buttoned. It’s unusual to unbutton them. Double-breasted jackets are classified with the total number of buttons on the suit front. Next, by the number of working buttons they have. To clarify, a “six-on-four” kind of jacket has six buttons, yet it has only four holes.

    In general, one must fasten all the buttons that have working buttonholes to don this type of jacket.
