    Hello,

    Having never had this sort of issue before I am at a slight loss here.

    Could any quality tailor add a lapel notch for the boutonniere or pocket watch chain to the lapel?

    The lapel in question is a silk-satin material.

    Thank you.

    I think he is referring to the lapel buttonhole? Best to examine an example of a tailor's buttonholes before you let him at your jacket...

    Yes, I am referring to a buttonhole.

    I own a tuxedo with peak lapels which oddly enough do not possess a buttonhole.
