should I shop around more (anyone know what field's charges?) or is the going rate going up now that this seems to be "trendy"?

If it helps, I paid $120 for the job you see in those pictures.

Yes, I am very happy. I think Carlos did a beautiful job (all without having to go into the city too, which is a plus). The buttonholes look especially nice and you can tell that he put a lot of work and effort into it.

I believe Brooks Bros told me it would be $80 or $100 for working slv bttn holes when I pruchased a new OTR Golden Fleece suit.

Mr. Ned's adds a $50 charge for working holes on their suits.
