The ‘Sometimes, Always, Never’ 3-Button Rule

A few years ago, we published a guest post on suit buttons, and one of the best things I got out of it was a handy way to remember the right way to button a three-button suit jacket.

It’s called the “sometimes, always, never” button rule.

Starting with the top button and working your way down:

  • it’s sometimes appropriate to have the top button buttoned along with the middle one
  • it’s always appropriate to have the middle button buttoned
  • and you should never button the last button

Sometimes, always, never. Easy.
