I don't recall Scott posting any suits from A&S, just one jacket. The suits were from other firms. Of course, I could have missed it.
It wasn't a photo post, just a statement that I remember in this thread on the SRBA standards, since those included cross-stitching of buttons:

Their final standards are quite a subtle comedown from Count Lippe's initial postings. I was interested to see the reference to cross-stitch buttons: I have suits from SR tailors (one of which is a member of SRBA) that have two-eyed buttons, thereby making cross-stitches impossible.

With regard to the buttons, I know one S Row firm in particular who use the two-whole buttons and they consider it one of their 'signature features' if you know what I mean? That'll have to go out the window now I suppose.

Concerning the two hole buttons - I think that the house that uses these is well beyond reproach and has been instrumental in putting the quality standards and specifications together.

As all my Anderson & Sheppard coats have two hole buttons ... I'd say it's safe to assume that we are referring to Anderson & Sheppard.

Without any disrepect intended, I'm not sure Mr. Hitchcock is necessarily the definitive source of comment on what is particularly A&S historically and what is not...for what they do now, of course, he is, and he probably has strong views generally.
Maybe if Edwin sees this he can comment on this critical issue of holes in buttons.
