When you're paying good money for bespoke, how important are the small details to you

IMO since joining the forum one of my main dislikes of some shirts I have is the lack of patter matching. I cannot think of a single T&A shirt I have that matches. While the fabric is nice and the colors are great for the price you would think that this could be done.

Isaia, truzzi and others never seem to fail.

Are you asking whether to request small details or small details requested not being fulfilled? If the former it depends on the customer, if the latter it depends on how important the detail was.

I couldn't care less if my bespoke shirts had hand stitching (they don't) but I do care about the quality of construction, which to me includes things like the tightness/fineness of the stitching, the neatness of the buttonholes, etc. My shirtmaker matches the pattern well, and I think it would bother me a little if they didn't.
