Difficult decision. I think I’d leave it as it is if I’m honest. Too much risk trying to get it just right while 99% of people wouldn’t notice the current placement.
do you mean the suede one from this season or the one that is exactly like the valstarino from last year?Hello everyone. Does anyone have the Drake‘s Valstar suede jacket? I wonder if it fits true to size? Thanks!
Have those buttonholes been cut?
Thank you, that is helpful.do you mean the suede one from this season or the one that is exactly like the valstarino from last year?
I bought the valstarino one from last year and for me, found it a little tight, which as I understand it, the valstarinos are well known for, and all but very slim sharp Italians normally size up.
Honestly, I would just leave it alone.
thanks dw, they aren’t cut and the folks at drakes advised moving them is possible - unknown is if the move will leave a trace where the button was originally, as you note…i have to imagine it wouldHave those buttonholes been cut?
If not, I would move the last button to the other side, like the photo below (maybe even move two).
If the buttonholes are cut, then there's nothing you can do besides adding an extra button. Personally, I wouldn't add another button. I think five buttons would stick out more than a button set that's high on the sleeve.
FWIW, my coats have their first buttonhole cut about 1.25" or 1.5" away from the edge of the sleeve.
Note, I don't know if removing buttonhole stitching on corduroy will show. This is something you can sometimes do with wool, but corduroy has a nap. Would ask the tailor before proceeding.

I would leave it as is. If it still bothers you in a few months then you can think about taking action. I has happened many times that I have fretted about imperfections, and then actually have come not only to accept them, but to like them for the added "character". And in this case, with such a casual jacket, I especially wouldn't mind too much. It would be different if we were talking about your wedding suitthanks dw, they aren’t cut and the folks at drakes advised moving them is possible - unknown is if the move will leave a trace where the button was originally, as you note…i have to imagine it would
I’ve been eyeing Drake’s scarves like this and the one @K. Nights posted a couple pages back. Anyone know where to score one for less than $225 USD? I missed out on opportunities to get one via the archive sale. I constantly check eBay. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.Oops I just ordered a scarf, my first nice one. Completely on impulse. No thoughts at all on how I will wear it. But maybe, grey herringbone tweed jacket and brown cords could work?
I see them only very seldomly on the secondhand market. They're probably due for another archive sale before too long, your best bet is probably to wait for one of those and hope they have something you like
I think they're a bit smaller but Portia1924 got some under 150USD right now
