Question: A tailor has offered to make a silk suit for me but insists on a four-button styling. The price is right at $400 but, will I look crazy or am I wasting money?
Answer: Hmmmm the price is definitely right but, your overall style scoring may be wrong. While you won't look crazy because there are men that clearly wear these types of suits, you will lean more toward the off-duty football player who also believes in bling and pinstripes on everything. Net-net: a good tailor should be able to do a two- or three-button suit.
