Why Men Don't Use Bottom Button On Suit Jackets?
King Edward VII
King Edward VII—sometimes referred to as Edward the Wide, though not, bafflingly, His Royal Wideness—boasted a size 48 waist. In the interest of comfort, he simply stopped fastening the bottom buttons on his coat and waistcoat. Legend then dictates that, rather than insult the body image of their monarch, the British royal court followed suit—literally—and kept those bottom buttons undone.
