I see a lot of Mod fellows out there buttoning down their suit jackets all the way from top to bottom, but that's just not the way to go. Here are the reasons I see as to why you should leave the bottom button alone:
- It's tradition. Sure, not all traditions are worth following, but, um, this one is.
- In general, suit jackets are designed to leave that button undone.
- Trust me, you'll look so much less uptight with that bottom button loose.

I leave you now, but want to let you know that, yes, I too used to button all the way up before I got a clue. So don't feel bad if this is something new to you. It was new to me once too.
