Shirt buttons

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Today I saw the thickest buttons I have ever seen on a RTW dress shirt. Athough I am not an expert at all, I do have a fair collection of dress shirts, mostly with french cuffs, and while some have thicker buttons, they are no where near the size of those I saw today. Mastai Ferrentti was the label, and the buttons were off white plastic. In my estimation they were at least 1 cm thick. Has anyone else every seen buttons of this size? And what would be the purpose? IMO they took away from the look of the shirt. Classic

Thick buttons are really starting to annoy me. At first it was a cool noveltly that came along with buying better quality shirts, but now it's just a nusance.

I actually agree with Mike C. - particularly when they are plastic buttons which they mold so thick to give a low-quality shirt an "expensive" appearance. Even super-thick MOP buttons are one thing to see, another thing to button, particularly if the maker puts super-thick buttons on the collar and cuffs without a shank.
