    Same. I have been holding off buying any slip-ons for months because of those.

    Anyone have success getting the sleeves on their knit blazer altered?

    I took it to my tailor to get it shortened and they suggested taking it in from the shoulders due to the (nonfunctioning) button holes.

    Mauro has this in the description: Sleeves prepared for alterations

    Do I need to find another tailor?

    the biggest benefit of nonfunctioning sleeve buttons is that you can get the sleeves adjusted from the bottom and not at the shoulder. find a new tailor.

    I think the problem is that while the buttons are non-functioning, they still have the button hole stitching around them. So, you can't just shorten the sleeve from the bottom and move the buttons up because the button hole stitching is still there.

    I know this doesn't help you now, but members could do MTO for free. I had my sleeves shortened by the factory and they came out perfectly.

    The blazer is really wonderful. Will post pics at some point.

    well I decided to give a look see at the wvg product page. The buttons are functional, which means there are holes, which explain the stitching.

    so @platopus you've gotta do it at the shoulder.

    They aren't actually functional until the holes are opened up and the buttons reattached.

    Ah I see. Well from the shoulder sounds right then?

    I think Mauro's design was a compromise to enable functional buttonholes without having the risk of altering from the shoulder:
    -If the length is right, cut the button holes open and you're good to go
    -If the length is wrong, strip out the stitching for the button holes, shorten the sleeves from the end, move the buttons, and add buttonholes in the right place

    Going to hang with Mauro for a little bit tomorrow in the afternoon. Going to snap some pics of the toni suit and burgundy sweatshirt. It's going to be dope.

    @justtemple - very interested to see the Toni suit. I somehow must have missed the release of that one.

    Put in an order for the thermal sweater last night, and got a refund today. It's too bad we couldn't hit the quota to get it fab'd. I did pick up one of the new merino beanies, though. I love the cashmere one I got last year, and at $30 this year's looks like a steal.

    I didn't check to see if I got my refund. That sucks.

    The Toni jacket and pants are silly. Its a knit wool/cotton blend that feels akin to lounge wear. The suit is VERY comfortable. The color is a really rich navy blue and theres a slight texture to the fabric that is really unique as well. The sweatshirt is super thick but it didn't weight me down. I layered it under the slim jacket and it was more than fine. The suit is pretty casual so I would personally do a sweatshirt or a sweater with a dope texture with it.

    For reference: 5'10", 160lbs
    Size 40 jacket, slim
    Size 32 trousers
    size medium sweatshirt
