Stop Buttoning the Bottom Button of Your Jacket
There's no excuse.

There is a scourge upon us. (Actually, there are a number of scourges upon us, with new ones raising their heads each day. But this is one that we can actually fix.) Guys the world over have forgotten a cardinal rule of dressing themselves: Don't button the bottom button of your suit jacket. Ever. It's the quickest possible way to make yourself look like you don't know what you're doing (and like you just gained ten pounds).
Still having trouble with this concept? Don't worry. There's even a quick mnemonic to help you out: sometimes, always, never. That's how often you should button each button on a three-button jacket, from top to bottom. For a two-button, it's even simpler: always, never. Never. That's how often you should button your bottom button.
If you're not convinced, just look at Leonardo DiCaprio here, with his bottom button done up:
