Thanks, and great job..really, you have my respect.

I have studied and taught myself the various methods of alterations, stitching, etc..not being entirely satisfied with the lack of attention to detail from the seamstresses Ive been meeting, and I refuse to spend vast sums on alterations such as taking in trousers, cuffs, and buttonholes, etc...

Im a hopeless perfectionist, and if I want it done right I usually have to do it myself...especially when one tallies up these alterations and you realize you could get another fine garment for the price..it is just too enticing.

But one soon learns, you just don't have the time!

I noticed your handmade buttonhole..well done. These take me ages to complete. Hopefully I will get faster after a few more, but man, I feel my tailoring days are numbered. I need to get these things DONE already!

Have a great Hackett tweed 2012 jubilee matching trousers and waistcoat that are just outstanding, simply lacking hand refinements such as handmade buttonholes..

Man does this stuff take ages, but it really sets the whole garment off, really puts it over the top. I love details.

You have my respect and appreciation!
Bravo and thanks for posting.
