    Exactly! My band jacket is a little bigger and looser than my own. I like mine tailored to fit, while the band jacket is tailored for piping.

    Thanks gents!

    For sure the traditional way is to wear a waistcoat and leave the jacket unbuttoned. Wearing a jacket sans waistcoat was rare in the old days.

    But it's usually warm here in Southern California, and while the jacket is necessary (for a smart professional appearance) the waistcoat is not, and the waistcoat adds another layer of wool.

    When it's cool enough, I do add the waistcoat, and the jacket is left open, as seen at this funeral.

    (That could be Arran over there, or Skye, but it's Santa Catalina Island.)

    Most of my kilt jackets will comfortably button even though I wear them open. I do have one that, while it will button is not as comfortable and if I were to want to button my jacket, wouldn't chose this one.
