White dress shirts with colored buttons or colored button threads?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I just did a search and couldn't find anything addressing this:

 

Has anyone tried getting a plain white shirt and mixing it up with, say, red buttons across the front, collars (on button-downs), and sleeves? Let's say: plain white shirt with red buttons and white thread, or white shirt with navy buttons? I cannot find pictures of this online and wonder how it would look. Perhaps there is a good reason I have never seen or heard about this--it may look awful. I'd be interested in the thoughts of the community on this idea. I was thinking of buying these, say (http://www.ebay.com/itm/200pcs-Round-Buttons-Assorted-Colors-7-10mm-Sewing-B40-/380267160426?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5889b0636a#ht_2537wt_1365) and taking a shirt down to the local seamstress to have them refit a plain white shirt with a stack of, say, red or pink buttons. Thoughts?

Only other color buttons I would ever get on a white shirt is black. You can do what you want though.

On a casual shirt they look a little ... cowboy.

On a formal shirt the buttons are covered by the tie, so you're better off weaving your name into your underpants for all the good it will do.
