    Buffalo used to have several really good suit factories. all closed.

    so there might be some older Italian tailors left, who are really good

    I just felt like there was a bit too much fabric and that was causing the creasing, but the shirts are fairly comfortable. Ill attach another picture with better lighting, let me know if the shirts fit well.
    And of course your opinion is very much appreciated! @Shirtmaven

    you seem to have sloping shoulders. it is possible to cleanup by removing the sleeves cleaning up the slopes and re-attach the sleeves

    Anyone tried to get buttonhole done by chipp? They charge 85 which I think is as low as by hands get (bonus point, they're close to work too). First time using them hope it turn out well

    I think it's "ok", they might be able to do even better job had I been more demanding (i.e. if you look at all 3 some of them are definitely done better than the other)

    Now the question can anyone recommend a place for machine buttonhole (so I get better consistency), Ignacio (the one next to Bloomingdales) quotes me $120 for machine buttonhole as suppose to $85 at chipp.

    LNC does machine buttonhole. I forgot how much but it should be less than $85.

    LNC typically has a couple of the bespoke suits / sport coats he's working on out in plain view.
