You may remember I purchased an Oxxford recently from ebay. I got it and brought to a local tailor who said she could put working buttonholes on the sleeve. Well, when I got it, no dice. She claimed to have misheard me. Needless to say, I did not pay for what I didn't get. I then got a Brioni (that navy wool/cashmere nomentano from honest goods). I brought that one to a tailor near my work (La Jolla). He assured me he knew what to do. I got it back and it's perfect! I wore it yesterday and it's "like buttah!" I brought him the Oxxford and he said he could repair it and convert it to working holes. I'm confident he'll do a great job. That Oxxford is also a great suit. It's a navy windowpane on a lighter background that really lightens the effect and it is quite distinctive. The Brioni has cranberry pins that are just great! Two incredible suits that I feel terrific in. I'm getting that Zegna sportcoat I posted here before (15 milmil) and I think I can have working holes on that one too. I obviously have some old suits and coats which no longer fit me (too tight due to the weightlifting) so these are some replacements. My wallet has just asked me for a rest.
