For those who bought the laces from me before, I would really appreciate if you can give me some feedback.

I finally got some time to post these buttons in the new B&S. I have been selling these buttons on StyleForum for one and a half year now. The previous threads are here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/236625/5mm-3mm-thick-mop-horn-wood-buttons-for-shirts-jackets, http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=196276, http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=168850 and http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=177427

The most popular #1b 5mm thick MOP shirt buttons are available at $1.65 each now (originally $2 each), thanks to the great help from those SF'ers and tailors who enabled me to run the group buy.

Shipping to continental US via USPS First Class $3/order, international shipping available at around $4 to $8. I will offer 5% discount for orders with 50 buttons and more.


0a. Black horn buttons. 40L (25mm) (for overcoat & trench) 5.5mm thick, $3/pc; 32L (20mm) approx. 4.5mm tick, [COLOR=FF00AA]sold out[/COLOR]; 24L (15mm) approx. 4.0mm thick, $1.5/pc. This is the original first batch.




0b. Black horn buttons. 40L (25mm) (for overcoat & trench) 5.5mm thick, $3/pc; 30L (20mm) approx. 4.5mm tick, $2/pc; 24L (15mm) approx. 4.0mm thick, $1.5/pc. This is the second batch, which looks slightly different from 0a the first batch.





1b. 16L (10mm), 5.0mm thick and 14L (9mm), 4.0mm thick, white. $1.65/pc. The bottom is curved. Made by a factory that supplies Brioni. They are more transparent than 1c. They are the most amazing shirt buttons that I have ever seen!





1c. 16L (10mm), 4.3mm thick and 14L (9mm), 3.8mm thick, white. $1/pc. They are whiter and more solid looking than 1b, meaning they are less "show off". They are 100% clean on top and bottom, no remaining material from the outer layer of the shell on the bottom.





2b. 16L (10mm), 3mm thick and 14L (9mm), 2.5mm thick, smoked. $1/pc. The bottom is curved. Made by a factory that supplies Brioni. These are made by NATURAL smoked MOP, NOT dyed black, like smoked buttons offered by other members here. So even if they are slightly damaged (by washer, for example) later, you won't see white dots showing up on the crack. Smoked MOP shells are thinner than white MOP shells, so 3mm is the thickest one can get.





2c. 18L (11mm), 1mm thick, smoked. $1/pc. The colors that it reflects are amazing! Most iridescent smoked MOP button that I have ever seen. These are made by NATURAL smoked MOP, NOT dyed black, like smoked buttons offered by other members here. So even if they are slightly damaged (by washer, for example) later, you won't see white dots showing up on the crack.





3a. 32L (20mm) and 24L (15mm), 2mm thick, white. $1/pc.





3b. 32L (20mm), $2/pc. and 24L (15mm), $1.75/pc., 2mm thick, white. Made by a factory that supplies Brioni. The bottom are mostly the same color as the upper.




3c. 32L (20mm), $2/pc. and 24L (15mm), $1.75/pc., 3mm thick, white. Made by a factory that supplies Brioni. The bottom has some yellow material from the shell.





4b. 32L (20mm) and 30L (19mm), 3mm thick, $2/pc. and 24L (15mm), 2mm thick, smoked. $1.75/pc. Made by a factory that supplies Brioni. These are made by NATURAL smoked MOP, NOT dyed black, like smoked buttons offered by other members here. So even if they are slightly damaged (by dry cleaner, for example) later, you won't see white dots showing up on the crack. Smoked MOP shells are thinner than white MOP shells, so 3mm is the thickest one can get.





5. I have a few dozen in each size/color of the following buttons. PM me if you need a set or two. I do have to reserve some for myself though. Price is usually $1.5/pc except for the smoked and white ones.



Size (L to R):
24L (15mm), 28L (17.8mm), 39L (24.5mm), 24L (15mm), 14L (9mm), 18L (11.5mm), 24L (15mm), 32L (20mm)
24L (15mm), 28L (17.8mm), 39L (24.5mm), 28L (17.8mm), 39L (24.5mm), 24L (15mm), 32L (20mm)


6. 32L (20mm), 5mm thick and 24L (15mm), 4mm thick brown wood buttons, $1.5/pc.
