    I love hand sewn buttonholes so I am starting a thread dedicated to them.

    The pictures are all from suits that I have in my home or office.

    Feel free to add your own. Hand sewn only, please.

    I sold this Hickey Freeman Presidential sportcoat two years ago. The buttonholes from this (unappreciated) collection were finished on both sides.

    Caruso does a nice asola lucida too. I have seen it on Lanvin 15 Fabourg suits.

    I found some old pictures of the suits on my computer but it is impossible to see the buttonholes.

    I like the craftsmanship of the TF but that giant buttonhole feels like wearing a logo to me. They also lose most of their points by using machine buttonholes futr the fastening buttons.

    Are buttonholes always supposed to be the same size? I thought they're appropriately sized in regard to the lapel width.
