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.

    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.
