Do you mean something like this:Reviewing older fashion books or even watching old movies reveals that DB suits vary far more than SBs in the areas of button placement, crossover point, and amount of (I forget the precise tailor's term) wrap. Look at Bogart's DB suits in The Maltese Falcon-- a similar high-set 6 button 3, very high crossover, and yet a wide lapel. And he looks terrific.
This suit plays with all of those elements, I think successfully. It is unconventional but balanced:
All three rows of buttons are basically one step higher than traditional. It would be interesting to see if when sitting if the absence of the lowest row of buttons produces a more natural look with less "blousing."
In fact, the suit looks a bit like an 8-button naval uniform sans the lowest 2 buttons. These styles traditionally do not widen the position of the two top show buttons, since the focus is on the insignia that are placed on the chest
