However, then I realized the metal buttons were only 1" so the buttonholes wouldn't accommodate the larger black buttons. In the end, I came to quite like the metal buttons and now I don't think I'd change them even if there wasn't the issue with the buttonhole size. Don't know if this is reliable info, but I read somewhere on the internet the metal buttons were used from sometime in the 1970s until I think 1984.



Interesting about the metal buttons. I have a vintage coat from 1955, and it has the standard plastic buttons. Forum member, "Peacoat", would have the definitive answer about the metal buttons.

Thanks.  The jacket is by Jey Cole Man.  I picked it up at Daffy's last year.  It's a european brand.  I don't see it in the US very often, but you can get some of their stuff up on Yoox.  The boots are from Ralph Lauren.  I picked them up last week on sale.
