    Hi Guys,

    trying to source some buttons for my first custom suit. Looking around online I found these. In the pic they look pretty nice, but perhaps they will be too shiny irl? I have never heard of MoP suit buttons before. Are they really a thing? They are to go on a navy PoW single breasted suit to mostly be worn when seeing clients and occasionally to court. I will otherwise probably just go with some regular matte dark brown horn buttons if I can find any.

    I have smoked MOP buttons on a "blazer suit" of my creation. I am inclined to think that they might not be harmonious on a navy POW check suit and a little too jaunty for court. Just a gut reaction on my part.

    Go with dark horn for a navy suit. Can't go wrong.
