Safest is the non-figurative H&S.

I do have brass buttons, and they have what looks like a matte machine-turned finish. Traditional, but not so "Ahoy, captain!"

God in Heaven, please do not make this the genesis of the StyleForum blazer button.

Take that kind of traffic over to AAAC...

Can it have a coat hanger on it? Or have we lost the copyright?

How about a clown and a big ring fighting with trad pistols?

How about bas-relief safari guy with pith helmet, pipe, and shorts smoking in his back yard?

Or a young woman's behind in low cut jeans, and engraved tatoo emerging out of the belt line?

I don't think I'm welcome there anymore .

So, SF blazer buttons it is. There ain't nothing some elbow grease, Google image search, and Photoshop can't get done in one evening.

You're a lawyer right? How about the scales of justice buttons from Ben Silver...

They also have a lot of other options and monogrammed buttons.

You could do what I did -- my tailor happened to have a spare prep-school set: http://www.rutgersprep.org/

I did not attend. In fact, if not for the buttons, I wouldn't have known of that school's existence (I found out by looking up the motto on the interwebz). The buttons look nice and minimize the "flashy-gold" look many wish to avoid.

In fact, I am wearing it today at the office.

I think you are giving up on your university blazer buttons too easily.

This shop has a set that look like this,

which seem to be perfectly fine to me.

Some weeks I practically live in my navy MTM blazer. I'd like to think it is not a bad thing.
