The Hand Sewn Buttonhole Thread

post #1 of 163
Thread Starter 
I love hand sewn buttonholes so I am starting a thread dedicated to them.

The pictures are all from suits that I have in my home or office.

Feel free to add your own. Hand sewn only, please.












































And an embarrassing Kiton in the window of Knize last week.

I sold this Hickey Freeman Presidential sportcoat two years ago. The buttonholes from this (unappreciated) collection were finished on both sides.

Caruso does a nice asola lucida too. I have seen it on Lanvin 15 Fabourg suits.

I found some old pictures of the suits on my computer but it is impossible to see the buttonholes.

I like the craftsmanship of the TF but that giant buttonhole feels like wearing a logo to me. They also lose most of their points by using machine buttonholes futr the fastening buttons.

Are buttonholes always supposed to be the same size? I thought they're appropriately sized in regard to the lapel width.

Im not actually sure about this. They had some TF look a likes at suit supply and my suit has one in their display on madison avenue thats obiously trying to look like TF but they both use the normal size lapel holes
