Can anyone recommend a shop in the DC area (other than Field & Sons) that can sew working buttonholes onto a suit jacket? This doesn't seem like a particularly daunting task but I have been to two tailors already and neither one of them can do it.

May I suggest to you a tailor shop near Mazza Gallery that the customers of Neiman Marcus are often referred to called Linea Pitti on Wisconsin Avenue.
I personally have not used their services but my salesman at Neiman's has all his clothing altered there. If you reside on the Virginia side of the Potomac River, I can highly recommend Kapfer Tailoring on Old Pickett Road in Fairfax run by a third generation German tailor and his wife, whose services I've use for years.
