    It might even be a way to save some fabric in cutting the waistband.

    I also think this was a clever way to save fabric and fixate the side straps.

    ....

    A ca. 1929-1933 navy blue DB blazer with lightly padded, round shoulders. The original buttons were damaged, so I replaced them with matching ones.
    It fits me perfectly and has long sleeves.

    The label points to Friedrichshafen am Bodensee (Lake Constance between Germany, Switzerland and Austria).
    I imagine that it was worn with white flanell slacks aboard a ship or promenade.





    Here the harbor of Friedrichshafen in 1931:

    Nice! I have seen jacket just like that being worn with white flannels in pictures. And then the buttons would look good too.
