Sirs, I will be posting up some pictures of my vintage formal stuff this weekend, but I have a question.
The covered buttons on my frock coat are quite worn, and one is missing from the front and one from the sleeve.
The threads feel quite brittle and I fear I may lose more if I wear it buttoned.
Am I best off trying to find a similar vintage button, or replacing the entire set?
Is there a source I should look to?
Also, possibly because I am an idiot, I can't seem to figure out how I'm supposed to button the confounded thing; it is double breasted with two rows of buttons and two rows of button holes. (Prince Albert?)
Edit: snapped a few pictures.
Any idea on year?
It has no tags anywhere, no outside pockets, one inner right breast pocket, and a smaller inner left waist pocket. Button holes in both lapels.
Does the small inner waist pocket have a special purpose?
Is there a way to touch up the worn patch on the lapel?
