movdqa - are you saying you don't do up the top button on your 2 button coats? Agreed that Murray's suit in the 2011 picture (might be 2010 actually?) is a poor fit and likely too tight across the waist, resulting in the pulling at the button point.
The good ol' days!
Top button should of course be done up, but buttoning point should be just above the waist.
Most jackets these days (even 2 button) button up way to high, as these do.
Even Fed's looks pretty bad.
