Gents, I need your opinions.

I have this J Crew heather charcoal tweed coat and I was thinking about afixing the brown buttons found below to it. It currently has the stock black buttons on it. What are your thoughts?

Like those sleeves and sleeve caps. Nice coat.

@ Willin - I'm not a huge fan of leather buttons, but lots of tweed lovers will agree that they are a solid choice. I think brown horn buttons would be a good upgrade as well....either way, definitely get something to replace the stock black buttons.

I, on the other hand, think highly of them.  Do it!

Barleycorn! yes. I couldn't think of this patterns name, though I recall someone mentioning it on here.

I love the leather (I'm assuming) buttons and have them on a brown herringbone overcoat, but I think they would be too much on this particular jacket. In their place- fantastic, but brown leather on grey tweed looks contrived - wrong color and out of proportion IMO. Perhaps slightly bigger dark horn buttons if u can source them.

Beautiful jackets...really love the three in the middle. Do you mind telling where you bought them and who makes the light tan herringbone jacket? Thanks
