    Raphael Suit No knowledge of the seller - just found it interesting given the prior discussions of Raphael.

    I was wondering if somebody would pick up on that. [​IMG] I was hoping it would get really cheap so I could buy it to see how it is made...

    I saw that a couple of weeks ago. No one has bitten yet.

    If someone would please take a look at the button-holes on the jacket, I'd appreciate it.

    I wonder if they are hand-sewn or machine-made? Can one tell the difference from that view pictured?

    Definitely hand-sewn. Though it looks like the stitching may be coming loose on one of the sleeve buttonholes.

    D'oh.  I was watching that blazer.  Oh well, you snooze, you lose.

    Ah, thanks A. Harris. I always thought a few of my bespoke jackets were machine-sewn buttonholes but it looks as if they are handsewn as they look remarkably like the ones in the pic.
