Fake button holes on suit jacket sleeve. What do you prefer?

I was curious to know when you get your suit jacket sleeve shorten do you have your tailor put new fake button hole stitching next to your buttons, have him do real button holes, or just leave it plain (4 buttons but no fake button hole stitching)?

Also whats your take on just having buttons on the sleeves and no stitching next to them? I would think it would not matter cause why put fake button holes next to them to begin with. That is if real holes are not an option. Is that a sign of a low quality suit? Or just personal taste?

If need to know, the suits are Canali and Corneliani.

By all means make them working only if the sleeve is correct in length and you trust your tailor's skills. A good high end jacket should have the sleeves lined in such a way that you only need to remove the old stitches, cut and sew the buttonholes, etc. Most jackets line the sleeve with the lining across the cuff opening slit requiring the tailor to realign the lining, etc.
