    Does anyone know of a source where one can buy frogging of the sort used for smoking jackets or military uniforms?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    They are actually called 'Gimp' buttons - if you mean the rope and toggle fastening.

    I believe true frogging is a great deal more elaborate than that shown on this jacket, usually being braid formed into a cloverleaf pattern on both sides of the lapel, not unlike that on a military uniform from the 19th century.
