I like the silver oxide. But if the crest on the buttons is not your own, do not wear the buttons. You're best off finding plain metal buttons.

I like mine with single forward pleats. But cuffs do not work well on moleskin because it is so heavy.
I'd be interested to know how much the companies listen to what their consumers want, because in the past few years I find nothing I like in clothing stores. I'd like to know if lower trousers rises and slim-fitting clothes are popular with manufacturers because they use less cloth. Because these trends surely don't fit the masses.

Get everyone something a little different, like shepherds check, houndstooth check, glen check,...
