Also the traditional way of wearing a waistcoat is not with the last lower buttoned fastened,
However history wrote this tradition going back to king Edward VII from the early 1900s. He unbuttoned the bottom of his waistcoat because he was too fat. He unbuttoned the bottom of his jacket to pay homage to the riding jacket that suits replaced.
