    sadly no. :(

    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.


    yeah, i have heard that is true. but i no wanna send my babies away. :)


    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.


    thanks. and yes you do. :)

    Alright, major inbound here, these are my Kops over the last week or so between all of the sales, promos, and just all around goodness.

    First up, from the good man SpooPoker, A Kiton Double Breasted suit, as well as a Ralph Lauren Three Piece suit. The Three piece needs to be shortened but the Kiton looks absolutely bang on for the coat, the pants need to be taken in at the waist just a touch:

    There are still a few things I am waiting on. Navy Drakes sports coat which should be here this weekend or next week, a Turnbull and Asser sports coat, Isaia suit, and I hope to get some more koppage in ate Luxeswap to help support charity this weekend. I hope everyone else is having a great holiday!!
