Working Button Holes - Yay or Nay

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am curious , as I currently have 3 Suits (Trousers to be Cuffed) and 6 Jackets that require Button Placement only (zero Tailoring).

The likely cost at my Local Tailor is probably just under $1K , with working button holes/or a Shit load less at the local Dry Cleaners.

How many people go with working buttons?

Save your money and leave the buttons alone.

I have jackets (sport jackets and suit jackets) with and without working buttons, it does not make a difference; it does seem nicer when putting the jacket on, but I forget about it afterwards.

If I am getting a bespoke jacket or suit made, I would want working buttons; however, would not spend the money on tailoring for rtw jackets.


Spend the money on decent scotch, Cuban cigars and hookers instead wink.gif

They're pretty much pointless. You basically get them for free on a bespoke garment (or at least, I've never thought to ask, "can I get $100 off if we do fake buttonholes?") but I wouldn't pay to have them put on a RTW coat.

Don't put them on RTW.

I have them on my MTM suits but they come with the price. I actually tried to negotiate a price break to forgo the working button holes. No traction with the tailor on that point.

I would have gotten working buttonholes to begin with rather than going through this jazz. If you have to pay to get them added, then skip it.
