    Hi, I'm looking for shiny black buttons for replacing the silk-covered buttons on a dinner jacket, but it seems even the polished versions are relatively matte compared to straight-up polyester buttons. I'm looking for a mirror shine finish on the buttons as the lapels are satin, but please do...

    Hello gentlemen, I own a very nice 2 x 6 db in navy blue of a very nice quality with silver buttons and I was wondering if i could replace the last button of the cuffs with rose-gold buttons of another db i loved that is now unfortunately unwearable. I really like the original buttons and I...

    Are mother of pearl buttons more or less durable than plastic buttons? I can’t take the time to launder my own shirts, I have to send them out. So if I have mother of pearl buttons will they last longer or shorter with the cleaners? Also, whether plastic or MOP are 2 hole buttons stronger than...

    When I ordered this , it came smelling like a musty warehouse. I tried to take it to a dry cleaners but they weren't able to dry clean it because of these metal belt hooks. I'm thinking about taking it to a tailor to get them removed. While I'm there, maybe I should get the plastic buttons...

    My intended summer-suit acquisition for this year is BB's blue linen: a navy linen can easily pull office-attire duty here in the American South (or, with a more colorful tie, play at garden parties). But this year BB has put white buttons on the thing; my impression is that this more or less...

    It does have a rather striking colour, however it does have one of the things which makes a jacket a blazer...gold metal buttons. Is this a blazer or a sport jacket?

    Couldn't find this topic in the archives . . . What are your thoughts, gentlemen, on brace/suspender buttons fastened to the outside rather than the inside of one's suit trousers? Vulgar and ostentatious? Perfectly proper? Stylish?

    I recently bought this Burberry shirt at a super deep discount and had it tailored with darts added before it was ready for a button upgrade. Just finished all the button sewing myself and thought you guys may enjoy the before and after pics. Smoke Mother of Pearl buttons do not work on every...

    For single button barrel cuffs with a second button seemingly about .75" away from the first, what is the purpose / way to button them? Should you typically button on the first? Or on the second if your wrist is small enough, and on the first on your watch arm? If always the first, what is...

    Covered Buttons Conundrum Hello everybody, this is my first post and I was pretty much compelled to join to ask this particular question, though I'm sure others will follow. I have read in a number of sources that covered buttons are preferable and more traditional for all kinds of formal...

    Hello All, Silver, Golden and Bark Bronze color: I have seen all kinds of buttons on the navy blazers. What is the significance of each color? Are different colors associated with different kind of occasions that navy should be worn (like a social evenings or business meetings and so on)...

    Does anyone know if there are any stores in Manhattan that sell sewing equipment? I need buttons for my jacket. Thanks.

    In the Styles section of today's NY Times is an interesting article about button "stance," the all-important placement of the second button on a shirt. As the article points out, if the second button is too low, you get "male cleavage" and chest hair. Too high and you'll look like Urkel...
