I don't think my old mall tailor will be able to handle this. Anybody know a tailor who can handle a Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece Suit which is completely unaltered (sleeve buttons are unattached, pants unhemmed), but ancient (probably from the 1970's or 1980s, based on the price tag). I'm going to either need all new buttons - since only 4 unattached sleeve buttons total were included - or 2 to 4 Â matching buttons for the sleeves. Â I'm also thinking of having functional buttonholes put in. Â I also need to do the regular stuff (adjusting sleeves and taking in the waist on the jacket, and also taking in the waist and hemming for the pants). Would Fields English in Georgetown be the best option for this kind of work? The only previous threads mention Fields, Baytok and Â Georges De Paris. I'm located in Old Town, but would go to Arlington and DC. Â BTW - working buttonholes - should I do this or total waste of time?
