The top buttons of jackets have been creeping upwards for a couple years now, but our friends at UrbanDaddy just put us on to an extreme example. This Monitaly Peter Jacket buttons somewhere around the collarbone, and the bottom split is high enough to let your belly button (or at least your belt buckle) show through.

The resulting look is eccentric to say the least—more like evening tails than a suit jacket—but close enough to standard-issue formalwear that it might pass from afar. The opera will never know what hit it.
