Opinion on Navy Blazer button replacement

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
I just purchase a BB Regent fit navy blazer. It looks and fits great but the gold buttons are awful and I'd like to replace them. Just for some perspective, I'm a professor (and 31 years old), and generally wear chinos/tie/oxford shirt or grey flannels/shirt/tie. With exception of the Summer, I like wearing a jacket. This blazer would rarely be needed for "formal" occasions. I'm deciding between these two buttons. One is a smoke MOP and the other a beautiful brown. I'd leaning toward the brown. What are your thougts?

Good point. The grey would be so close in color to the navy. Thanks for the inpu!

Here is the website. They have quite a nice collection.

Smoked MOP is very nice (assuming it's genuine, not plastic). The iridescent gleam is distinct and won't be mistaken for regular black or navy. I think it's nice, but maybe a little too fashion-y. Go with your gut.

I used to be a bit avant garde with the navy blazer I had. I often wear white or near white chinos so I replaced the silver buttons with white ones.

I really like silver buttons on a navy blazer. I have some on mine similar to these:

Where did you find those silver four-hole buttons? Have been looking for some myself

I'd go with the brown one as the color plays nicely together with navy.

I really like the idea of mother of pearl with a blazer because it picks up on the qualities of metal without feeling brash like shiny metal can.

But the brown is a great choice, too. And probably the more conservative one.

I think the smoked ones will definitely make the navy blazer come alive. But I kinda like the silver one posted here. In the end it's your choice really.

One more vote for smoked MoP. If the navy is more of a brighter shade regular MoP is really nice for summer too IMHO.

Definitely the brown ones!

I would prefer the brown. I think that this particular shade of brown, which I presume is horn, will look great on a navy blazer. Understated, but distinctive.
