    I just got my Oxxford Gibbson 3 button Sport Coat from the cleaners and the busted one of my sleeve buttons[​IMG] ! I contacted Oxxford but they've yet to get a hold of me. Is there any place the sells high end horn buttons for Suits and Sport Coats?

    Regards,
    Don

    There's a place called Tender Buttons in NY that has been mentioned here in the past. They might be able to help you. If you're not in NY you might be able to e-mail them a pic and a size measurement?

    Often one of the interior pockets uses the same button as the sleeves. Check there for a spare.

    Out of all the shit I thought of this one slipped my mind. Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I'm contacting Tender and my tailor.

    If you can't source a place that sells decent buttons you could buy an extremely cheap oxxford jacket off ebay - wont matter about the size or style - and salvage the buttons from it.
