I retrieved my jacket from Adriano yesterday, who shrugged his shoulders and said "good luck" when I said I had been quoted far less than $250. When I went to EA they said the charge for working button cuff holes would be $90, considerably higher than what they had quoted over the phone! On the other hand, $90 struck me as not unreasonable and is still almost one-third of what Adriano was going to charge me.
