The Hand Sewn Buttonhole Thread - Page 14

R.O. Thornhill, since your location is London and your hole is of the lucida style, I will say Chittleborough&Morgan.

That's interesting. Good to know!

On appreciation of hand sewn buttonholes:

 

I was dropping an MTM suit at the dry cleaners the other day, and an elderly gentleman in a dark blazer and smart trousers walked in. He walked over toward me, then began to closely examine the buttonholes on my suit.

 

"This is beautiful work, where did you get this made?"

 

"Indonesia."

 

"Keep it up."

 

Absolutely made my week.

have you personally used minussi?

...I have not, but the nickname Dirnelli favours them -- and he knows quite a lot about the finer things in clothes.

Minussi has a price list on their site and more commission examples on their FB account. They seem very, very skilled.

who does the best buttons in NYC to the quality of Minussi?
post #205 of 207
I would like to know this for NYC and LA as well...

Anyone know a tailor who will do milanese buttonholes in London- just the buttonholes?

I'm extremely particular about my hand sewn button holes for my suits and jackets and have searched near and far for a top notch tailor in NYC. After years of mediocre at best, and botched jobs, I finally found a crown jewel! My personal tailor developed a relationship with the seamstress who sews button holes for the NYC Brioni boutique. He brings my suits to her after he's completed alterations and has her sew beautiful button holes. Feel free to PM me for details. My tailor isn't taking new clients but I can prob get him to pass on garments to the Brioni seamstress.

May I ask you where you had your suit made? I didn't know good quality MTM was available in Indonesia.
