How much extra is the full canvas for Black Lapel?
Another +1 for Proper Suit. I'm not a big fabric guy (prefer durability over luxuriousness - fit is king) and I have 3 of their suits (just received the 3rd one). The 1st one I've had for about 4 months or so, the 2nd for 2 months. I wear them every week as part of my regular rotation and they are holding up well.

So the middle/crucial button on my 3 roll 2 SC came off (threads busted). Is this something any ol' seamstress at the corner cleaners can put back on or I need to seek myself a reliable tailor (of which there is one in the area)? It's a cashmere full canvas dealie if that makes a difference at all. Thanks!
Shoulder measurement?
