    Also the sleevecaps are not Sciamat-ish, they calm down.
    They're still fairly aroused on the pic you posted

    I still don't like how the shoulder lifts up at the sleeve joint [​IMG] please ask them to press it down.

    He means that they are finished on both sides. That's how most Italian tailors do 3-roll-2s.

    I'm wearing a 3 roll 2 today from Mina and the top button is finished on the show side only.

    Wearing Solito today, top button finished on both sides. Raphael also does that. The MA&SEBTâ„¢ does not.

    Post a pic. The Borrellis that I have are all true 3/2s, but they are all Linosa/Sorrentos.

    Here are two photos showing what I am talking about on my Borrelli jackets.

    All my stuff from Italy have top buttonholes finished on both sides, even the RTW stuff are, although very half-ass'd.

    I'm wearing a Caruso suit today and the top buttonhole is not finished on the inside - same as the other two buttonholes.

    I would say your jacket is just a three button jacket, or a 3 roll 2.5 at best.

    It's definitely not a regular three button jacket. All my jackets and suits from borrelli look like this. Maybe the jacket needs to be pressed but its certainly not a 3 button.

    3 roll 2.5

    Didn't I already mention that? It rolls to the middle of 2 and 3.

    Yes, you did mention this but I wasn't sure about my specific jacket which is why i chose to post pictures. What the reasoning between doing a 3 roll 2 vs. a 3 roll 2.5? Other than personal taste. Thanks.

    It's the style that Borelli chose. Simple as that.

    No reason other than to show off the side of the button that's finished [​IMG]

    Some people argue that with a 3r2.5, you have the flexibility to button the 3rd button or not. Some people like the longer roll in a 3r2, others like the symmetry of seeing the top and bottom button. The roll of a 3r2.5 is also often more voluminous while 3r2 are often flatter.

    All a matter of preferences
