You get a canvassed suit, good fabric, English cut with working buttonholes for about $1200.
How can the buttonholes be working on an OTR suit? The number of customers who won't need sleeve alterations is probably small, so won't the store have to shell out more for the alterations on this type of jacket as compared to jackets with basted sleeves or faux-buttonholes? It doesn't make business sense. Obviously, if we were talking about some cheap cotton, casual jacket at Banana Republic or Express (the "American chav" look of which many are so fond) that happened to have working buttonholes (this counts for "luxury" to those people, I guess)...then things would be different.
