When it comes to buttons and jackets, and coats of all types, there are two basic rules for every occasion:
- Whether single or double-breasted, go from the top down: sometimes buttoned/always buttoned/never buttoned. Keep that last one open. Always.
- When you’re standing, always fasten your jacket. When you’re sitting, unbutton it. When you’re dancing, unbutton, or throw it in the air like you just don’t care.
