It seems that not many people here know MOP button suppliers (which is not really surprising ), so we might just as well create a poll about the thickness/other properties, and simply report the results to MT and trust that they'll find an appropriate supplier? What do you guys think?

So after seeing these poorly fitting suits and reading these stories I am compelled to ask - why do people keep ordering from them? Cheaper than most local MTM places Dirt cheap with the better coupon codes Fully canvased construction Fit is hopefully...

I have super thick MOP buttons on most of my Borrelli shirts, and I love them. They look fabulous, and I'd think that they are more robust against dry cleaners. The buttonholes can be made larger to accomodate the thicker buttons. I don't think that's a problem. Therefore, I vote for super thick buttons, but if I'm alone with this, then of course any high quality, white MOP button (not thinner than the current 'thick' version) will do. Any suggestions for suppliers?

You might wanna consider adjusting the pants measurements next time. Either that or remove the banana from your pocket.

Well, I'm no expert, but it seems that the angle of the sleeves does not match the natural angle of your arms, therefore there is diagonal rippling in the upper arms/near the sleeve heads. This can be seen especially in photos #3 and #6. You'll notice that if you move your arms...
