Adding working button holes to a jacket - Page 2
Styleforum Top Picks
I am fond of working buttonholes as they let one roll up the sleeves of a jacket. This serves me quite well during tough late night M&A negotiations - slowly unbuttoning and rolling up one's sleeves looks the bit and psychologically impacts your adversaries. Just make sure the jacket is cut with enough fabric to allow this.
If I'm ever negotiating a transaction with someone and they start rolling up their fucking suit sleeves I'm going to burst out laughing at them.
Here you can see what it looks like from the outside with one button undone. They all can be undone but not easily and only for outside appearance.

Here you can see that they left the internal lining untouched and opened the sleeve outside of the lining. It is not pretty but it allows for all buttons to be functional.
This is a bespoke piece that shows what I think it should look like if it is made with functional buttons.
Left the good one outside of the spoiler. Nice buttonholes.
