Hi all! I'm new to styleforum and have an admittedly newbie question. I have a mish-mash closet of suits and sport coats - two MTMT with regular/average button stances, two JCrew suits with really low button stances, one Raf Simmons suit with a really high button stance, and a couple others of varying button heights.
I'd like to make the button stances on some of these suits more uniform, i.e. raise the JCrew buttons and lower some of the higher ones. So my question: is it possible to change the button stance of a suit jacket? It seems to me that it would leave an unsightly scar where the former button hole was. Other than that obvious problem, raising or lowering the buttoning point could change the "cut" and "drape" of the suit in an undesirable way, I would think.
Any info would be appreciated before I set off on a fool's errand! Thanks all!
