    I would like to have black buttons on my shirt. If I use studs for the top 3 buttons, how do I get the rest of them to match the studs?

    Do some shirts come with black buttons, and if they did, how will it look with black buttons and black studs on top?

    Thanks.

    I would suppose you're refering to a tux shirt. That would be 4 studs in a set not 3 ( at least in the sets I've got ), and the bottom of the shirt is covered by the cumberbund or vest -- or just tuck the shirt in you pants, unless you're wearing hip hugers.
    One might also get a shirt with the buttons covered.

    it is a shirt that has a fly front. Think of the fly on pants that covers the zipper, same idea on the shirt. A band of fabric that covers the buttons. It might be noted fly front tux shirts are at the upper end $$$$. And it's a style thing.

    I'm almost afraid to ask: Is this a tuxedo shirt or just some white shirt you're trying something with?

    Save the black studs for your tuxedo shirt. As for white shirts, no black buttons unless you want to be an individual and we had ways of correcting that in people when I was in the army.
