Spotted this suit online; reputable seller. But is that a faux lapel buttonhole I see?
I'm baffled. One of three possibilities:
1) Jacket is fake (improbable).
2) My eyes are fooling me, and the buttonhole is legit (possible).
3) Barbera does faux lapel buttonholes now (say it ain't so).
Barbera had this to say in a recent interview: "buttonholes and seams should be particularly accurate and especially in high price clothing should be hand-made and sartorial".
If #3 is correct, his design team is doing a great job of contradicting the guy.
Can anyone shed any light on this?
