Would use buttons with a matte finish rather than these shiny buttons
post #3287 of 9955

These colors look familiar. Wouldn't happen to be buttons from Grunwald's, by any chance?

Thanks all for the feedback. Bottom left it is.

Despos, I agree - will be an easy affair to matte-ify them (cue heismatt joke). A container with a lid and some fine sand is all one needs. I get all my buttons shiny, because it's a lot easy to make shiny buttons matte than to do the reverse.

Buttons are from RJ Weldon; I imagine there are just a few suppliers to the haberdashery resellers so similarities are inevitable.

Good point and agreed.

Hey Slew-

Any shot of getting another custom order through minnis for perhaps a fall fabric? Flannel perhaps?

apropos, great cloth and buttons. +1 to lower left.

Using that same pic, what colour buttons do you guys suggest for the RAF blue Minnis Fresco 0520? Black or one of the two darker browns?

Matte or shiny?

Thanks.

I'd like to see how matte the buttons can become with a little sand can shake. Please post the outcome if it's convenient.

I would only use matte buttons on fresco. As to color, it depends on what kind of garment you are making. If a jacket, then brown or white. Not dark brown either but a mid brown or tan. If a blazer suit, then dark brown is good. If a suity suit, then blue.

Doubtful anything for this Fall/Winter as I'm not decided on any designs and there probably wouldn't be time anyway. Soon enough I'm sure!

Thanks, Manton. It's for the suit you've already seen in the NSM thread. I asked for brown buttons but got shiny black ones instead. She of course offered to change them.

Another alternative is to send your suit to a crap dry cleaners, once had all my buttons come back matted when they were previously shiny.

+1, I can't miss out like I did with the cigar fresco.

Just had a basted fitting. Yes, it is THE fresco.

The back still needs some work.

What about MOP buttons for the suit?
