Well that's the first time I hear this about this tailor. Everyone complains he charges way too much for his work. First time for everything.

$100 seems reasonable for that work. My tailor is $10 per functional buttonhole.

(1) they're cheaper to add than real button holes, and (2) they're much easier to remove or move if you need to adjust the sleeve length the only downside is that they don't actually work... but since I never actually use them that doesn't matter.

I pay $10/buttonhole (Az, San Diego, Beverly Hills, and San Francisco). Sleeve alterations are extra.

in London I've been quoted between £5 and £10 per buttonhole (for working holes).

I paid $80 for mine in NY at the RL mansion. there's is no real use for the working button holes. just gives you a bit more satisfaction in knowing that they are there.

how much would you pay to have these hand made? http://tuttofattoamano.blogspot.com/...les-video.html

Mine are $100 for 8 buttons and sleeve alterations. Holes are done by hand, but I think you can get them done by machine at some Nordstrom's for about $50/60...

There are some Italian tailors that will do the whole thing for $6,000, and throw in a free suit if you get on their good side.

Usually about $5-$15 per hole depending on if it is done by hand or by machine.

One thing that another member wrote about some time ago that I thought was interesting... He mentioned just to have whichever holes you are planning on leaving undone made functional and leave the rest as non-functional to save $. Makes sense provided the non-functional ones can cosmetically look the same.

Another thing to make sure if before having it done (a good tailor will confirm this with you rather than just try to "wing it"), is to ensure there is enough fabric/overlap on the sleeve/cuff/material so that they can accommodate a working cuff without having to add extra material or make it look sloppy.
