I'm having sb, peak lapel suit made, and tailor suggested no lapel button hole - Page 2

post #16 of 18
FWIW, I have two older suits w/o buttonholes and regret that decision. I thought it would result in a cleaner line and, to be fair, it does. But the eye still notices the absence of the buttonhole.

I had SB peak lapel suit made earlier this year and had a buttonhole (and flower loop) placed and think it works very well.

Of course, there are other options. I quite like this sb peak-label jacket with a simple hole for a pin (the site shows some nice sterling silver butterflies and flowers):

What's with the jacket's fastening? It looks like two buttons roped together- or is that just for the photo?

You get that fastening more commonly on a 1BSBPL dinner jacket (my own dinner jacket has the same). It's traditional in that context... though obviously, not in the context of a pink jacket! Though the lineage is clear in some of other styling cues that are present.

Whoever designed that pink jacket clearly had some fun and it's certainly an interesting item. I like it, though can't think of too many occasions I'd wear it!
