    Both buttons.
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    It's the top button! The only suit jacket where you should close the bottom button is a one-button jacket, where the bottom button is coincidentally also the top button.

    While other shoes have some freedom, it's always a good idea to match your leathers: black with black and brown with brown. It's also good to match in formality, like with this casual belt and boot.

    Color, personality, and trendiness are all important in different ways, but nobody will notice if your clothes fit like a paper bag! Always make sure to wear the proper size. Get fitted if you have to!

    The red thread is a selvedge thread, which is the traditional method of closing a hem on jeans and produces a stronger hold. Raw jeans are often selvedge, but not exclusively so.

    The way a pant lays on your shoes is called a break. For suit pants, you'll want between a half and quarter break.

    They followed the cardinal rule of pattern mixing - don't mix patterns of similar size or scale, find a complementary color family, and add depth with a different texture or pattern.

    It's narrow and slightly assymetric like a four-in-hand. Half and full windsors produce a more generous knot and wouldn't match as well with this collar.

    Justin's shirt length is a little generous, but stick with 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch of shirt cuff and you should be dandy!
