Free bump for some GREAT buttons...and for Jantzen's new premium fabrics. KILLER combo! I really can't say enough about either.
I'm seeing Ricky on Sunday. Will ask him about it. I am almost sure that he will complain about the prices as the buttons he used now are made in China. The colored buttons are plastic. So...
Also, something I never mentioned before, is that the color of the buttons are somewhat consistent in my buttons even though they are all natural pearls. Reason being, and part of paying more for them is that, when I ordered them I specifically asked the factory to pick only buttons in pearl white and discard those that are not. Since, in a bag of 500 buttons there are probably just 2 or 3 that don't come out right. If this request is not put in, the price would be lower, but the amount of useable buttons for guys like us would be a lot lower too, because not all shells glow in pearl white. When I have time I will take pictures of the few that don't.
For buttons that are naturally not in pearl white, they are actually perfect for darker colored casual shirts. I am trying to save enough and order a black or grey shirt with these "faulty" buttons and see how they come out. On a regular dress shirts, they would obviously look "wrong".
