    BTW, RE buttoning only one button, I was at the airport recently and a guy was wearing a sharp sport coat but had both buttons buttoned. He was college age and probably new to this stuff. I almost said something knowing my total anonymity would spare him some possible embarrassment, but didn't. Had a similar thing at the grocery store the other day. Young guy, sharp sport coat, but he hadn't snipped out the tack stitching in the vent. Again I almost said something but didn't. Still debating whether I made the right call.
    I've had people tell me they "know it's usually done" 'my' way but they prefer how it looks with both buttons done / the stitching not removed / the Hugo Boss label on the sleeve / etc. obvious faux pas they're making. I don't bother saying anything anymore unless it's a close personal acquaintance and I know they won't mind a little ribbing.

    Also, donít buy a $55 sport coat off of Amazon, no matter how many buttons it has. This should be self-explanatory.
    Are you quite sure I should not buy a sport coat from someone who also sells fishnet hoodies?
