That's doable. You shouldn't need any excess material to get that done.Does anyone know if SM suits/sport coats generally have excess material enough for a tailor to turn the non functioning sleeve buttons functional? I rather enjoying embracing my Miami roots and rolling back my suit supply jacket sleeves.
I’ve got two suits and a sport coat at the tailor right now having functional buttonholes done. Should have them back later this week. I’ll let you know how it turns out!Does anyone know if SM suits/sport coats generally have excess material enough for a tailor to turn the non functioning sleeve buttons functional?

Absolutely, we can do the satin stripe down the leg on the trousers and U-shaped vest with satin buttons. We're working on adding these options to the website, however in the meantime just leave a comment during the checkout process and/or send an email with your order number to [email protected].Possibly interested in MTO tuxedo. Noticed you can change details on MTO shirts and jackets for tuxedo features (satin lapels, pleated front, etc), but didn't see the option for trousers or waistcoats (no options for satin stripe down the leg, nor u-shape waistcoat + satin buttons). Can these be requested in the notes? Also is it possible to ask for no vents (traditional in black tie)?
We would love to have a sample of each jacket to showcase, unfortunately there's just so many fabrics and mills that it's impossible to sample everything. We can however provide more pictures of the fabric swatch we have on hand. Also, take a browse through the Marling & Evans Instagram page, they showcase quite a bit of their collection and it may provide some more context to what the finished jacket will look like.I would love to take advantage of the Marling & Evans sale for MTO sports coats, but I'm pretty risk-adverse, and it is very hard to imagine what a jacket looks like from a small piece of fabric. It would be great if Spier & Mackay could post a few more pictures of finished jackets. I have my eye on a few of the darker, more conservative colors right now (Navy Glenn Check, Black & Gray Glenn Check, and Brown PoW). Any help S&M?
It looks fine to me. I looked at it carefully for flaw and nothing jumped out. Since you pointed one out, I guess the jacket length is...maybe... a little short, but it's well within normal range, and who cares? The overall look is excellent. Congratulations on getting married!My fiance took this S&M suit to a bad tailor, who unfortunately shortened the jacket too much. We are hoping to salvage it for our wedding; is it all that bad??
It was the lightweight oxford. Thanks for the tips, I've always used medium/cold setting so not sure what the actual temperature is, never had a problem with other shirts or clothes as long as I air dried.What is the material? Cotton, linen, or mixed? Up to one-inch shrinkage in sleeves may happen with mixed materials at warm washes. Is your medium wash at 60C? Safe is 20-30C at gentle cycle.
