Moving Button on a 2 Button Jacket

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Something got lost in translation with my tailor and the buttoning point on my newest 2 button suits is now about 1.75-2 inches above my belly button, about 1.5 inches higher than I would like.

Is there any way to change this? I have 4 suits and a jacket like this and it starting to drive me crazy.

Unfortunately not, since the buttonholes have already been cut.

not all is lost.
just would be a very expensive.

i have seen buttonholes woven closed.
then recut.
the problem is the lapels are pressed for the other shape.
that might be hard to repress

Clarity of communication is key between tailor and customer. It's not like failing to clearly communicate with, say, your wife or your mistress. That's usually no big deal. But your tailor deserves to know precisely what it is you want him to do for you.

Not much you can do about the existing harm, but learn from your past mistakes. Don't repeat them into the future.
