Do they exist? Did Lacoste ever make any with MOP buttons? I think this vintage one I found has them but I'm no expert at identifying MOP.

Tap it against your tooth. Then tap a platic button against your tooth. If it's MOP, you'll know.

My Lacoste's have them (non-vintage). My Burberry one does too.

In no particular order:
1) Ralph Lauren Purple Label
2) Alfred Dunhill
3) Hickey-Freeman (Italian made polos-vintage and current?)
4) Malo

I'm 90% sure the Loro Piana polos I bought the other day have MOP but didn't actually check with the "tooth test". They're a very good visual imitation if they're plastic. Good polos, too.

Lacoste definitely does have them on their current offerings here in Europe.

I have one from Zegna with MOP buttons, but I don't know if all their polos have them. I used to have a Jeff Rose polo that had them as well.

Right now, Marshall Field's has some house-brand polos (albeit in a fine, nontraditional weave) with MOP and abilone buttons. There are many colors, the mercerized cotton is very nice, and they're $48.

Does mother of pearl feel more like glass against your tooth...?
