Thanks, the maker is Camiceria Piccolo, this one is a shirt made with a mix of cotton and cachemire, very soft and warm...

I love this thread and don't want to see it die!

I thought some members might like the not so close up of the handmade Milanese buttonhole on the bespoke linen sport-coat I'm having made at the moment. You can click on the images to zoom.

I'll have some more image of the buttonholes, when it's finished in a few weeks, as well as a video showing how a Milanese buttonhole is made.



For this coat, we're also doing a unique fish-shaped buttonhole for the final hole on each sleeve. The image below is a draft example, before the final ones are sewn in:

It seems like the best looking hand-made buttonholes look the most like (good) machine made ones. It's a funny area.

They are done a completely different way and don't look alike (especially Milanese). I don't think you can compare them. Handsewn button holes use a single thread on a precut hole that is knotted at every step.

I realize that the construction is different.

What I'm saying is that perfect handmade ones look, to a non-afficionado of buttonholes, much like machine made buttonholes. They're only notably handmade when they are badly (sloppily) done.

You have to be pretty deep into clothing construction to appreciate them.

After the asola lucida buttonhole, I've always held Truzzi's holes the best-looking. Theirs is a rounded look though the individual stitches are fairly sparse.

Oddly this jacket has hand sewn buttonholes but the buttons are non-functional
