    What type of men's suit has a jacket that buttons without folding over itself?

    • A.

      Single-Breasted

    • B.

      European Cut

    • C.

      Pinstriped

    • D.

      Double-Breasted

    Correct Answer
    A. Single-Breasted
    Explanation
    A single-breasted men's suit has a jacket that buttons without folding over itself. This type of suit jacket has a single row of buttons down the front, and the two sides of the jacket meet and button together without overlapping. This style is more commonly seen in modern suits and is considered more versatile and easier to wear compared to double-breasted suits, which have overlapping front flaps and two parallel rows of buttons. European cut and pinstriped are not specific to the type of jacket closure and therefore are not the correct answer.
