A neat sidenote to the Oxxford discussion; after buying my first Oxxford Clothes sportcoat (on extreme sale.), I learned that you can send items to the Oxxford factory for working buttonholes on the sleeves. Just had this done thru my local mens store (MS McClellan, Knoxville TN). service charge was about $129, both sleeves four buttons (including sleeve shortening). needless to say, flawless handstitching. Finally took the plunge and bought my first Oxxford suit, grey with subtle pinstripes (alternating gauges), SB 2 button with double vents (harder to find in oxxford stuff, i think?); plan to do the same with the sleeve buttonholes.
