Is this common? I had a tailor take a new suit (Benjamin from eHaberdasher) and hem it to me. When it came time to implement the functional buttons he looked at me like i was crazy, said in 30 years he'd never been asked to do that, and said that the machine that it would take to create the button holes alone was not something tailors usually had on site.
So...is this common? Does anyone know a tailor in SoCal who would be up to the task?
