    So, I know a bunch of people here on StyleForum have been going to ModernTailor.com for custom shirts -- myself included. I am very happy with them, but find that the one thing that can really make the shirts stand out is missing -- high quality, mother of pearl buttons (because theirs currently suck).

    I've emailed requesting them, and they don't seem to have plans to offer an upgrade. I figure if enough of us request them, though, they may give an option to get some put on at about $10-12 extra per shirt.

    These are the style of what I was thinking: http://www.hst.com.sg/acatalog/T4449.html

    Anyone else care enough to send an email to them?

    I emailed them and got a response saying that they have had many requests for higher quality thicker MOP buttons and are working on it.

    I also asked about it and they also said they'll have it soon. No firm date though.

    I called yesterday and they said to check the website on a daily basis. The problem is you need to create a shirt and go through several steps just to see if they have the new thick MOP buttons.

    Sorry about the delay. We released thick MOP buttons some time late March I remember but they have Moderntailor brand and some customers preferred no brand. Now we just got new thick mop, without brand...
