I have searched and searched and have yet to see anything similiar! Was the designer's idea behind this stitched shut (via an x cross pattern over it) lapel button hole (boutonniere) to be left as is? It is a Thomas Pink Wool Blazer with pink stitching on one of the cuff button holes. This "x" stitching across the lapel button is also pink. I do like the cross stitching done over this lapel button hole, but am wondering if the design behind it was to allow someone the choice to keep it. While I have seen many sewn shut, I've never seen a lapel button like this. Thoughts? Keep it? Take it out? Agree that some (less conservative) would choose to keep it in?
