Jos bank are affordable & actually not terrible. real onyx and fixed (not swing) back. Ignore retail price & don't pay more than 50-70% off.

However, I thought I wanted black studs, but after seeing them on realized they break up the white of the shirt too much. (I'm a small size and my chest+jacket looks better with the unbroken space.) Will switch to mop or fly front.

That's a good point about continuity. I like something with MOP but my reasoning has to do with having a midnight tux.

Another option that I saw on the barney's warehouse site were plain sterling. Could be interesting (some contrast but not as much as onyx) and they're almost 70% off; about $200 for two links and four studs. Good deal in my opinion.

There is also J Hilburn at that price. Onyx or MOP w rhodium.

But I'd consider vintage sterling from eBay. Or Missing Link if you're in NYC (not sure about their prices).

Vintage is an excellent option. Lots of great sets floating around (at shops and online).

^This is hat I would do if I was in the market. If they are older than 20 or 30 years, they are typically of better production and the value to cost ratio is outstanding. That said, there is something lovely about shiny and new sometimes smile.gif

I have vintage sterling and gold stud sets I picked up on eBay. I think they just add a bit more character to my dinner jacket.
