Are you sure? Mine look and feel like thin, cheap plastic... There's 2 different chambray shirts, one with open pockets and one with button down flapped pockets (don't know the term). I have the latter... Maybe there's a difference between the two? I'm not really into "period" details, I just want it to fit, look decent, and be somewhat durable.
I only mention MoP because I absolutely love pearl button snaps on western shirts... Hey, if I've gotta replace the buttons, might as well go whole hog...
