(all I would say is at least please keep the OG anchor buttons - just in case, you know...)

Finally, someone talking some sense around here

Heres a happy medium. A few years ago I replaced black plastic Anchor buttons with metal ones. I agree with GDL that horn buttons don't look good on classic peacoats.

Save the horns for something else. Black metal seems like a good alternative.

Not a peacoat fan but I do agree with gdl, mrmax and chopped liver. Get metal buttons, maybe similar to what you had on the other peacoat.

Thanks, guys. The anchors go. Metal anchors don't help at all.

Say what you want, I quite like the look of buttons like these on a peacoat.

For anchor buttons, those are quite nice, Cr. Nice buttonholes too smile.gif.

The other metal ones remind me of

I'm also in the market for horn buttons to replace the anchor buttons on my vintage pea coat. These look great. Could I bother you for the link to the button above?
