Tenth Doctor Blue Suit Analysis


Part 5 - Four Button Closure

The buttonholes were centered over (what was presumably) the center front pinstripe and were precisely two pinstripes wide.

Note also that the buttonholes were "keyhole buttonholes," not the standard rectangular ones.


The buttons appeared to be evenly spaced, approximately 3 ½" apart:

Furthermore, the locations of the buttons and pockets were strategically coordinated with each other!

The top button was placed halfway between the upper and lower edges of the left external pocket pouch (including the pocket flap, unlike the brown suit).

The second button was positioned such that its upper edge was horizontally aligned with the bottom of the left external pocket pouch. 

The bottom button was positioned so that its center was horizontally aligned with the tops of the lower pocket flaps.

However, it seems that sometimes the second highest button was positioned so its center (and corresponding buttonhole) were vertically even with the bottom of the chest pocket, rather than with the top of the button.

The buttons themselves appeared to be ¾" wide, with four holes; they appeared to be a slightly darker navy blue than the actual blue fabric:

In fact, the buttons weren't solid navy blue at all! They were a more of a swirl of several blues ...
