How do you contact the Waterbury Button Company?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
On a recommendation from this forum, I tried contacting the Waterbury Button Company for a set of Harvard University traditional brass buttons for a blazer. They haven't replied in two weeks and I think their email is busted. Anyone know how to inquire about special orders from them?

I really feel for this Harvard grad stint, I guess.

Thanks. I was hoping to avoid the long distance call though.

Why did you opt of them over, say, Ben Silver?

What's Ben Silver? Does it sell buttons?

Josepidal, there's Tender Buttons in NYC. Don't know whether they have a website and don't have their phone number, but they're reputed to be phenomenal.

You've been on both SF and AAAC for how long? And you don't know about Ben Silver???

Ben Silver is a relatively famous maker of school blazer buttons.

I believe that they have some sort of relationship with Benson & Clegg who does something similar in the UK. Not sure if they have a common supplier...

If it is simply harvard brass blazer buttons you want, then you should try:

http://www.ivysport.com/

they are the official outfitters of the ivy league and if you click on harvard and then gifts, you'll see blazer buttons among other Harvard stuff

Tender Buttons (bottom of the article has telephone numbers):

Ben Silver reportedly sources its buttons from Waterbury Button (I don't know this firsthand; read it on the forum).

Interesting... anyone have Waterbury buttons to compare then to the Ben Silver ones?

m@t, you're right, I have to figure out all this voip stuff.

The last time I asked, no one mentioned anything but waterbury. Okay, which is the best bet for a blazer I'd plan to use for a while?

If thinman is correct, there may be no difference at all.

I'm sure when you get to Harvard they will have them.
