Shit, even my painted CvsF buttons fade. I'm not sure how you want painted metal not to...
Both my shirts are metal buttons. The white paint is even wearing off my blue chambray buttons. I can't speak for 100% of the shirts but I suspect they are all metal. But yeah if you find a MoP snap button chambray, let me know, I'll buy it in a heartbeat.

Pretty sure they aren't going to snap in half. It's funny how people want period/elevated details but then can't notice them on common stuff.

A brand this big is never going to be as niche as even J. Crew can be. However the Jean relaunch...
There is an ELC submission on the front page of notcouture right now.

The fit is pretty good, but it's SO damn thin, and at $50, it makes the $70 J Crew flannels seem like a bargain. I do have a 20% off receipt though, and will probably pick it up. I just looked it up and apparently it's not flannel which is why it's so thin. It's a gauze. I would assume it's $49 as opposed to the normal $39 or $44 because of all...

I asked if he was since he was so out of whack on the pricing. but yeah I will try to remember to snap a picture of my gray. Gap calls it light blue chambray but by all defintions it's gray.
