1. Learn to spot the telltale signs of an ill-fitting jacket.
If the shoulder has a divot, the coat is too wide; if it forms an X shape when buttoned, it's too snug.
2. Remember it's always acceptable to fasten the middle button on either a two- or three-button jacket.
Fastening the top button is optional with a three-button jacket, but under no circumstance should you fasten the bottom button with either jacket option.
