I recently thrifted a vintage military style (i.e., epaulets, grenade rings, rear kick pleat, belt, etc) double breasted leather trench coat in oxblood (red/brown). [see attached photo] It currently has dark brown (with hint of red) wooden (I think) buttons. However, one of the large/main ones is missing. Since I was never too fond of the current buttons anyway, this seems like a good reason to replace them all. What type (horn?) and color button would work with an...

Two best indicators are: 1) the condition of the interior of the shoes. If they are ragged out (i.e., discolored/blackened, sweat stains, etc), that is a good indication to pass. 2) the condition of the soles. If the soles are heavily worn, you should probably pass. Also, look for a little hammer symbol branded into the soles. This indicates that the shoes have been recrafted (indicating even more wear). However, before you go the eBay route, I would...
