You have to understand it is MTM and you cannot get everything you want. If the house style or model you chose at this store doesn't have these features off the rack, you probably won't get them MTM. Of course you change certain styling things, slanted pockets, vents, etc etc etc. If you wanted 5 buttons on your cuff overlapping, and you had it made at Brooks Brothers, I'm pretty sure you're not getting them.
