The hidden rivets on the back pockets came through rather quickly on my first pair. So on my second pair I just asked them to skip the rivets on the back pockets, not even hidden ones. No problems so far, back pockets have not fallen off yet.
I think sending pictures and also specifying in text is the best solution. Always difficult when something unexpected is done though. Regarding the decorative stitching, it should be easy to remove
I have the exact same experience. I am about to order another pair and was considering adjusting the measurments. But if they "forgot" to hot soak them the first time and does it on my next order everything will be off. I dont know much about denim so I asked another guy here, and was told that they probably always will shrink unless you cold wash them. Mine was washed on 40C, no tumble dry. The shrinkage was more or less exactly what Luxire has mentioned here before.
Grunwald has some nice buttons. Maybe a bit too dark? http://grunwald-true-style.com/product/brown-horn-buttons-for-overcoats/
Should be a coresponding buttobhole here. And it is not a weird place. Only seen it on bespoke pants before.
No lining at first fitting and you could feel it through the shirt, will be fully lined when finished so it's not going to be an issue. But the swatches I handled prior made me believe it would be softer.
I have a Molloy & Sons sportcoat in the making with NSM. Not finished, but had one fitting. It was heavy and itchy. See how it turns out next time they are in Stockholm.
A G&G bespoke balmoral oxford but with back seam I think they would look a lot better without it A Otsuka different balmoral with some kind of sideseam. But it has the sideseam on the inside and outside. Pictures from the cetipide site. There might be better examples there... Not sure if this is of any help
