MOP Shirt buttons - new inventory arrives - Page 8

post #106 of 162
Got mine Oct. 5th, took 10 days. Pretty fast shipping. Buttons look insane.

Just got my buttons. They are flippin' sweet -- the pictures definitely don't do them justice.

A few remaining buttons left, and I have only about one and half week more before my next trip. Send in your orders soon.

The order for black MOP fell through last time because we didn't get enough orders. According to the new pricing from the factory, it takes at least 30 sets or so to make sense. Now that many have ordered from me and know the quality of the buttons, I hope that would convince you. These are genuinely the best MOP you'll find, the same used by Borrelli and Barba. Let me know how many would be interested in black MOP.

I am also thinking about sourcing some nice horn buttons from the same factory. Again, these are nothing but the highest quality, so they are costly. They will be around $3 for the large button and $2 for the small button. Any interests?

I received my buttons today and like them very much. I'd be interested in horn buttons as well as any mother of pearl with a blue tint.

I'm also interested in uncolored horn buttons. Please let me know.

I'd like to see some pics, but might be interested!

Buttons start shipping after the weekend. Inventory not as healthy as the last batch, so do send in your orders quick. Price as usual:

$1.80 per button. Assuming you are making a one-button cuff, you'd need 9 large and 2 small per shirt.

5% discount from 6 sets and above (roughly 66 buttons).

5% discount AND free postage from 10 sets and above. --- may not be able to satisfy such a large order this time though.

You're read the feedbacks (8 pages long) so I need not brag about them anymore. Get them before the next price increase in 2010.

Update on horn buttons:

These are extremely nice - and rare. The best money can buy, used exclusively by a few Italian tailors. They are definitely more attractive and elegant than the buttons used by the London tailors. Will give you pictures after the weekend.

Price: I have not received price from factory yet, but pretty much the same scenario applies here as with the MOP buttons. I have to order a significant quantity - too much for my own use, therefore selling those I cannot use. They are not cheap though, so be prepared; but they are definitely the best. Those who know me personally knows how obsessive I am with buttons.

Stay tuned.

Hi there, what colour do you have?

Plain pearl white. No yellowish under-tone at all. The same buttons as Borrelli and Barba (I still haven't gotten around to posting a comparison photo, but will do so soon). None of the buttons used by Jantsen, Ascot Chang, etc..

The black MOP project didn't pen out because we just couldn't get enough requests.

I would be interested in both the black MoP and horn buttons. Anxiously awaiting photos.
