What is your preference and/or experience? What type suit do you have them on (two button, DB Ect....)

I'm not sure what the difference is. One is shinier?

I just requested horn buttons for a MTM navy suit (two button). They are not high contrast or shiny, but I still wonder if it would have been been to just stick with the dark navy buttons. I like the look of the horn buttons but I wonder if they are the best choice with a suit.

depending on the color of horn....IIRC you can get dark horn buttons. Personally, i think that the lighter horn should be done on a sport coat. just my 2 pesos.

OP, polished horn for suit, unpolished for sportcoat. again, just my humble opinion.

They say a polished one looks like fake or plastic.
