    Ha, well that's a good question, I guess I'm not quite sure how to describe buttons. I do like Luxire's standard buttons, but I guess I mainly feel that a few options would be nice. I really like some buttons I have gotten from Hwa Seng Textire (www.hst.com.sg), especially some of their trocas buttons like these: http://www.hst.com.sg/acatalog/T4507.html
    I don't have any in front of me, but the main differences as far as i remember are obviously the shell itself, which is a bit less iridescent, and slightly more yellow/beige in color. The shape is a bit flatter and with an added ridge obviously, pretty much same thickness I think, but a bit larger in diameter. I like them.

    Then again, I can always change out the buttons myself in about 30 minutes if it's such a big deal. Which it really isn't to anyone, except possibly obsessive nerds like us.

    ^Interesting that you'd prefer trochas over mop. I'm not a fan of the flat yellowness of trochas.

    Not in general maybe, but I did really like those buttons.

    :)

    Customer service queries are best by email because it also helps us keep track on them for current and future reference.

    A quick comment to give some praise to Luxire (I'll probably send them an individual email before the day ends). I've received my second shirt where I made adjustments based on the first. They followed every instruction perfectly and delivered a great fitting shirt. Based on this good experience, I hope to order a few more shirts in the near future.

    Thank you Luxire for the service you provide.

    re cufflinks: It would be preferable to have actual descriptions of the metals and jewels used rather than asserting that they are of the highest quality.

    Thanks guys. Here's the inside:

    [​IMG]

    The top, gray pair is shown earlier in this thread. Haven't taken a pic w/ the lightweight tan gabs, on the right here, but they fit the same.

    I'm very happy w/ them. Construction's great. Different degrees of handwork are available. Buttonholes could be better, but I think they've made some adjustments since these were made. And they've had some difficulty finding good, affordable buttons. Real horn is expensive, particularly for button flys. Personally, I'm happy with imitation horn, or maybe even plain plastic. Many of even the highest end bespoke and rtw makers use plain plastic, but I know all things artificial are hated here. A good compromise might be plastic on the fly and horn on exposed parts like the front waistband and rear pockets.
