Brass or horn buttons for a navy SC?

Mother of pearl could work as well...

Yeah I like MoPs.

I prefer metal buttons for a navy blazer, though smoked MOP can be nice for something more summery. I'm assuming we're talking about a navy blazer (any other navy sport coat should not have metal buttons).

^ well it's a Oxxford navy jacket that I am converting :/ but I think I can get away with it since it has no pattern what so ever. I might do smoked mop.

Really? I was on the fence about the jacket, but the pants were awesome I thought.

Sorry RTC but I agree with MF.

@Isolation the fit looks good (of course, you do love your big drops and major waist suppression) and the overall look is sublime, for a young man like you.  I hope your tailor hasn't let you down at the back.  Love those roped shoulders.  It's flattering shade of blue on you too.  Your persistence has paid off.  However, you're partner may not wish to let you out of their sight now.  :D  

 

P.S.  Your above mentioned pronounced drop/waist suppression preference, may be causing tugging on your middle row a button -- where the jacket is fastened -- a tad too hard.  You may find others comment about the "X" creases this is causing about that button.

Thanks. Yeah I wonder if my recently gained weight had to do with that, but regardless I'll look into it more for the future stuff. It's not too pronounced so I'm pretty happy with it now.

rtc, I think the jacket actually looks pretty good. I wish that the fronts weren't so closed, though.

@Isolation the "X" crease issue (which only SF type guys tend to notice anyway) I suspect is only a minor issue, which you may be able to rectify by either (1) moving the button slightly or (2) loosing the (ahem) excess weight.  Too much "char sui bao", "har gow" and "shoamai" in HK, ah?  :D

If I had to choose two grenadines then these two non staples



A nice fall color in a bicolored grenadine and I like slate blue ties.
post #12418 of 37396
Nice choices tweedyprof! I was thinking about the same printed grenadine in rust, but decided I need to build up some staples.

@aglose I have both types of buttons on my various navy SC.  However, I do love the metal buttons.

Left: 4-Hole solid .925 silver buttons, which are rhodium plated.  Right: 4-hole gold toned alloy buttons.
