I saw in the July or August issue of Men's Ex an interesting gadget. It's almost like the silk cuff knots one would wear as cuff links, but instead is made for the jacket lapel buttonhole. I did some google and found nothing.

What do you guys think?

I think it depends on what it is and whether you can pull it off. Traditional, no. Stylish, maybe.

I'd say no as a general rule, but I'm sure someone here can pull it off quite well.

there have been discussions about this, several times. those show membership in organizations. I think that they are called rossettes, or something similar.
