Just in case ... three-button jackets

Just in case you thought a three-button jacket was a good idea for the shorter man, we wanted to alert you. There is absolutely no need for the five-eight-and-under guy to wear a three-button suit jacket, sports coat or blazer. The simple reason is that you want to elongate, not shorten, the distance between the top-button of your jacket and your neck.

So you made the right choice with a two-button jacket. Don’t go ruining that. Only button the top button (never the botton, ever) and keep that top button buttoned. Tom Ford says it makes the man look 10 pounds lighter. Are you going to argue with Tom Ford?
