Some sham sleeve buttonholes will leave a permanent mark when removed, depending on how the sham was sewn and the type of coat fabric. A skilled tailor can assist you in your decision.

At one time I had approximately a dozen black tie events that I attended at my clubs. I resigned from the last one recently, so that leaves me with one formal event each year. Interestingly it is an event to which white tie may be worn. I have a set of tails but I do not like my shirt and vest. I would probably have to have them made. Some day perhaps.
As I recall from reading an article on him that was published some years ago, he patronizes Anderson and Sheppard, favoring bold patterns.
I am fifty one and have been wearing tasseled loafers since I was twenty. I have several pairs, the oldest being a very sleek pair from Tricker's in a snuff suede. I special ordered them in 1988 and they still have their original soles and heals. The price was eighty five dollars.
I cannot tell what those spots are, or what caused them,from looking at your pictures. "Of unknown etiology." Go to the best dry cleaner and ask if they can be removed.

As my wife is wont to say, "Pink should be every man's favorite color."
At one time all Oxxford coats were shipped with buttons attached to sleeves. I think that it might have been any additional show of handwork, as the buttons sat like fat soldiers in formation atop thick shanks. The garment that you came across was probably shipped that way. If the buttons are sewn flat to the sleeve fabric, then it is possible the garment has been altered. Creating functional sleeve buttonholes is not an issue with Oxxford garments.
