Two-button jacket into three

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Has anyone had a two-button suit jacket recast as a three button? Can it be done well and at a reasonable cost (say, $100)? Any recommendations for tailors in NYC who can do this? Thanks.

I have done it a couple of times. I think it was around $20 when I did it. Well worth it. I also saw it done on Queer Eye For The Straight Guy.

Another thing, the two existing buttonholes are likely to be machine made. An additional handmade buttonhole would stick out like the proverbial sore thumb. Even if they are handmade; nobody is likely to match exactly the color of the thread nor the "handwriting" of the original seamstress.
