  • When it comes to tailor made suit Styles, one of the most important things to know and learn about is your Lapels. Know the different styles – Peak, Notch, Shawl – know what you like, what works for the suit your purchasing, and how they align with the collar style your shirt has and the size/width of your tie.
    As a rule of thumb, you can never go wrong with a Single-Breasted Two Button Notch Lapel Suit. For Double-Breasted Suits, opt for the Peak Lapel.

  • Know whether your jacket is a No vent, Single vent or Double vent, know what you prefer and know why. No Vent and Single Vent will have maintain the shape of the jacket, at the expense of mobility – it is recommended for Thinner torsos. Double Vents on the other hand allows for increased mobility, and recommended for Big and Tall individuals.Suit Vents

How To Properly Button Suit Jackets & Blazers

In today’s world we have single breasted suits & blazers that encompass one, two, three, and four buttons. (sometimes even more) We also, have double breasted suits that have many different button styles, especially with some being for show and others being functional. We completely understand style is personal, but when it comes to buttoning suit jackets the rules are just too simple to mess up and we want to show you what is proper. These are the only rules you’ll ever need when it comes to how to properly button your suit jackets and blazers.

 Single Breasted One Button Suit Jackets

There’s one button, you’ve already cut corners and made it as easy on yourself as you can 🙂 simply remember when you’re standing it should be buttoned up, and when you sit down be certain to unbutton it. If you leave it buttoned you can loosen the fabrics integrity and you’ll be uncomfortable just as well.

Single Breasted Two Button Suit Jackets

Probably the most modern and timeless style of men’s suit jackets, you will see this one often no matter where you are. The top button is the only button that should ever be fastened on this jacket. The same applies as above to when sitting down, keep your jacket unbuttoned when you sit.

Single Breasted Three Button Suit Jackets

These suit jackets are a bit less common in 2015 although you still see some people across the nation and the globe staying true with them. When it comes to buttoning the three button it’s just a simple rule to remember, occasionally you can button the top, always button the middle, and the same applies here as with all lowest suit buttons.. never button it. When you sit down, well you should know by now. 🙂

Double Breasted Suit Jackets

These jackets have a different look and different set of rules. Some have just two buttons, four, six, or eight. At any rate, the proper way to go here is still quite simple; you can button them all with the exception of the bottom one, that should be left undone. However, when sitting in double breasted suit jackets you should not have it unbuttoned. Furthermore, you should never wear a double breasted jacket unbuttoned, ever.


That’s it, short, sweet, and right to the point this week gents. No frills or thrills, just straight up style advice to make your dapper self a bit more educated and slick. Keep in mind we offer single breasted suit jackets with one to four buttons and double breasted jackets with four or six buttons with one or two functional buttons (5 different styles).
