Give him my compliments (I don't remember my login for the LL)
^ Ha ha, I don't remember mine either, too lazy to look it up.
Anyhow, I don't know him personally, but I think he is a physician (?surgeon).
My theory is that he uses surgical loupes like those below to get really good magnification to do such fine and detailed work. Just a theory.
There's more to it in the feel of it than seeing it up close, but if he is a surgeon then he would have good hands for it and be a natural, I would think.
I agree. I think Kiton makes some of the most horrendous-looking buttonholes anywhere.
From Journal of Style:
I've been using her since she's supposed to be the best around (in central NJ). I'm in NYC often enough that it's no problem to drop stuff off there. Who do you guys use in the city for hand sewn buttonholes?
These are some I've done on my own. The rightmost 3 are done in vintage Coats & Clark silk and the rest in Guterman R753. The 2 traditionally sewn holes on the left have a narrower gimp than the rest.
How much does she charge per hole?

Sorry for that - google search for TF buttonholes brought that up.
I think it was $118 to adjust the length of both sleeves, create the buttonholes and sew the buttons on. I also had her hem trousers and do other adjustments so I'm not sure if I'm recalling that figure correctly but if that's not it, it was close to that.
those are so tight.
you did the first one? amazing. are you a tailor or hobbyist?
Still looks quite fine.
