Button Up

Almost  without exception I arrive to a wedding as the wedding party is getting ready or about to line up and I notice that the gentlemen often do not know which buttons to affix on their suit or tuxedo jacket.  The rule is very simple:  for a three button jacket remember the phrase- Sometimes, Always, Never.  You sometimes button the top button, you always button the middle button, and you never button the bottom button.  If it is a two button jacket the rule is -Always, Never.  By leaving the bottom button open you are allow the jacket to fall slightly open as you sit, thus not straining the form of the jacket, as it should contour your waist.
