Don't do it. Put the money towards a proper bespoke suit.

Like a hood scoop is a nice performance detail to add to your Honda Civic.

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 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.
