sadly no. frown.gif

all the NWT SCs i have gotten that have the option for that, dont have 'em. i cant find a tailor i trust to do it for less than 20 per button hole. 160 per jacket. too much scratch. maybe some time in the future.

Eeek that is steep.  I need to get my Cashmere Kiton SC finished with working button holes now that the sleeve length is spot on, quite a bit for that though.  Need to talk to a local tailor that I trust, maybe run a junkier coat through them first to check their work.

Might be worth sending it off somewhere, there are plenty of tailors in NY for you, Stitches...

For that matter, if someone knows a good tailor they trust in NY, I'd be interested as well.

Just off the top of my head, CEGO and Mr. Ned have very good reputations here.

Meh, working holes is just a bonus, not a big deal. Seriously only people doing rolling up of their sleeves are "surgeons," and even that is anachronistic

if its someone you have not used, defo have them do a trial. even just making a button hole on a piece of wool fabric to see if you like their work.

well, i used to keep one or two of my functional buttons open for fun. now i dont, but i still like having them. but agreed, its an extra, not a necessity.
