    Same here. Its definitely the kind of job that you dont want someone doing unless they absolutely know whats up. The only jackets I have with them are the ones from Panta.

    Yeah, I'm thinking about dropping some jackets off at a good taikor in NYC if they agree to do the work and send them back...probably when I go for the next SF trunk show. I'd love to have working cuffs...just three buttons.

    If you want them done by hand in NYC, it's hard to find and crazy expensive iirc

    Damn you, unbel. Damn you to hell.

    If you're very confident in where the sleeves need to be hemmed to, I think you can get Formosa to do your holes for you (hush) on your next MTO.

    Thanks. Extremely confident....they are perfect out of the box. I've sewn the ones on I have now myself....I'm crafty.

    bit of a risky proposition to have them hemmed and finished in Naples without anyone from Formosa measuring/seeing you. I would not recommend. I'm pretty sure you can find a local tailor for machine-made working buttonholes?

    Since buttonholes done locally won't match the ones done by Formosa, I just have the buttons attached.
