Are they they the yellow brass buttons? I hate those.
No, I hate the gold / yellow ones, too.
I got pewter gray buttons.
That's weird. Why not get horn, or MOP like a normal person?
I don't get this. If there's an available seat and I feel like sitting, I'm going to sit. I paid the $2.25 or whatever it is now (I ride the subway maybe once a month these days). I guess the socialist ethos continues to propagate.
I'll get up for a pregnant woman or someone elderly, but otherwise I don't see the issue.
Do you consider yourself to be a normal person?
Normal in the context of "people who think about clothes".
Pewter gray buttons are fairly normal within the spectrum of buttons one can get for their blazer.
Plus, I like the look of metal buttons over MOP on a blazer. I also distinctly don't care for horn buttons on a navy blazer, either, though I do know a lot of SFers like the look.
I actually passed on a gorgeous blazer recently because it had metal buttons. I realize it's 'normal' but it's a little too much for me.
It's easy enough to change the buttons
when you already have no need for one....
How common is this sort of shenanigans on the subway in NYC?
I see dancers like those (albeit much better) about 4 times a week. Not lying.
IME, it's more common in the stations than on the trains. Times Sq is a 24-hour theater.
My favorite jacket is an old Paul Stuart sack blazer with thin brass buttons.
