With everything that shows up on this thread, I'm not really surprised that these were found. What amazes me is that someone put 14k gold buttons on an Alan Michaels blazer! Thanks a lot Spoo. Now I feel like I have to inspect every blazer for buttons.
Haha true true...We all felt the same way about checking all the gold blazer buttons after the first set were found! But like you said, THANKS ALOT SPOO, this just confirms we gotta check all the "shit", cuz ya never know...

You won that?!? My jaw literally dropped when I saw that close. I was heartbroken until now when I found out that it was you. Now Im happy! Wear it in good health or sell it for a hella profit.
Dude, since the day that I saw the Oxxford post, I started checking EVERYTHING. Every time I saw a gold. Finally paid off. I mean I had to have looked at over 3500 jacket buttons, easy.
edit - find of the year, 2012.
Anyway, flipping through the racks, nothing spectacular, then I saw this which warmed the cockles of my heart :
Then came across a staple blue DB, seemed nice... flipped open the jacket, saw this :
BOO. Pass, boring, slide over to the next. But in that slide, Something caught my eye and I went back....it couldnt be, could it? In flipping literally thousands of jackets, Ive never...ever... until today...
Solid gold buttons. On a DB no less! 4 fronts and 6 for the sleeves. All marked 14K.
Now how much was that bastard again?
Hi, Mr. cashier, Ill take this, please. Oh, this is pretty heavy, is it a winter coat? Well, its a winter weight, sure. Great, winter coats are half off today!
Im SO glad I can cross this off my list... I never thought it was going to happen.
