Yes, what Smitty said, if its mostly wool, there should be no issue with holes (beware of similar alterations to cotton or linen)
Won't be able to tell if buttons should be repositioned until a fit pic, but yes, there should be an "offset" of the upper buttons as compared to the lower buttons. Looking forward to fit pics. Below is a good example of eye-pleasing DB button placement
Yeah I'll take a look at button placement after the other alterations are done in about 2 weeks.

Unrelated topic: I now have concert tickets for the first time in a year and a half. Cloud Nothings. Black Cat. Day after the Jack Rose meetup. Definitely going to be burning the candle at both ends this August.

Anybody else have an unexpected three-day holiday weekend beginning tomorrow? (Thanks Biden!) Snuck up on everyone this morning, so I haven't given much thought on what to do. Sadly, all the local museums that have reopened are already booked up.

I forgot we were getting it off so I ended up using my floating holiday on Wednesday instead, and then went in today to facilitate the Juneteenth peace rally that our black employees resource group put on this morning.

I was off today and checked my work phone and found out about holiday. Was goofing off today and I guess again tomorrow!

Knocked out an urban ride on this surprise Federal holiday. Lafayette Park open but Penn Ave still closed in front of WH. They are debuting the new fence as well. Significantly higher than the old one.

Thanks for pointing this out. I am tied up on a project so won't make tonight but, having lived in DC 1981-1985 I spent too much time at 9:30 and a few other punk-like places (usually dressed in suits from Britches of Georgetown!).
Sadly, being born in DC in 83, I was too young (and too sheltered) to experience much of the area's punk scene during its hayday. I only first went to the 9:30 club in its newer location when I was at GW in the early 00s. And I was definitely wearing cargo shorts and hoodies at the time!

I had a lot of grand plans for my unexpected day off today, but ended up only bringing up my window air conditioner from the apartment basement and installing it. :facepalm: Better than sitting around and posting on StyleForum all day, amirite?

I definitely was dressed 'differently.'
Having grown up in New York City I went to the Mud Club, Peppermint Lounge, Pyramid, and of course spent my 16th birthday at Studio 54, making out with the wife of a head of state!
Yes, you did lead a sheltered life...but sometimes a quiet life leads to longer happiness.

I assume we now have to guess the wife of the head of state? I'm going with Lucia Hiriart, spouse of Augusto Pinochet.
