The Return of the Two-Button Suit

A classic rolls with the punches and comes back stronger than ever

After a long run of retailers pushing three-button suits as the new standard in men’s fashion, the two-button suit is re-emerging from the shadows.

As the old adage goes, "what’s old is new again", but with a catch: this is NOT simply an opportunity to dust off the old two-button coats from five years ago.

Today’s two-button coat has been modernized and enhanced.  The new version is designed to make men look a little more fit, with a slightly stronger shoulder, a narrower lapel, and a higher button stance.

Here is a visual comparison of the classic and the updated two-button coat so that you may see these differences for yourself.
