Easies showcased their new line at Lakme Fashion Week on Day Two.

Apart from some immensely stylish designs for men, there was one faux pas that we simply couldn't help noticing.

Cricketer Irfan Pathan walked the runway in this super smart navy blue jacket that we would so love to buy right now!

But Pathan's designers (or was it him, we may never know) broke a cardinal rule about jackets -- you never fasten the last button!

If, however, you are wearing a single-button jacket, you keep it on when you're upright.

But when you're sitting, always, always leave your buttons open!
