Suit: Low Button Stance Jacket

December 17th, 2013


    “I lost a lot of weight recently and my old suits look pretty awful. They’re really boxy and I don’t care for that look anymore especially now I’m so much smaller. ” – JDC, Greenwich CT


    When tailoring a jacket (or “coat”, which is the proper term), we suggest a low button stance as shown on the right (in addition to proper fitting waist). The depth of the button stance creates a deep “V” shape which broadens the shoulders and chest and narrows the waist. Conversely, a high button stance doesn’t create the deep “V” shape, and broadens the mid section of the coat – giving the illusion of a larger body underneath. During your fitting we will work with you to place that top button in order to create the shape that will best enhance your body shape.
