White buttons on navy coat - white or navy thread? - Page 2

post #16 of 29
No. I fear that the white buttons would add to its air of malaise. Stick with navy.

Navy thread. Contrast is classy.

I think that's a very nice touch.

To the OP, unless you want to steal the above idea, I'll add in a vote for navy.

Interesting.
I was thinking of doing something similar but with the buttonholes themselves - maybe a bold yellow on the bottom one while keeping the other ones more conservative. Too much?

Sorry for the slight hijack OP.

I like the contrast idea. A friend of mine has a similar thing on his navy suit (white thread on all but the end buttons, which are navy) and it's notable without being too striking. Subtle.
