Men that wear suit jackets know the unspoken rule of never buttoning the bottom button. This is the general rule for a 3-button suit jacket: Always button middle, sometimes button top, never button the bottom. Seems like a silly rule but all men follow it. According to Business Insider, "It dates back to King Edward VII, the king ruled from 1906 to 1910. When he was just the Prince of Wales, suits were becoming popular and Edward's diet got the best of him. To make himself more comfortable, he'd undo the bottom button of his waistcoat. Out of respect, everyone followed the trend." It's very funny how trends get started.
