    Hello all,

    I am looking to replace the buttons I currently have on my Charles Tyrwhitt Navy Bridge Coat.


    [​IMG]

    I am thinking of replacing the current buttons with brown horn buttons? Any recommendations as to which type of buttons I should get and where can I find the best bang for your buck high quality buttons on the internet or NYC area.

    Thanks!

    Horn sounds fine, but I'd say a plain dark navy would work as well.

    if your in NYC, walk down any block in the garment district with the coat and you will find many places.

    This looks quite good. I have a bridge coat (an actual, issue, full length one, made from rough Melton) that I swapped out the brass for leather buttons.

    I added it later; maybe you just missed it.

    Good luck. Make sure you get the right size (mine are two millimetres smaller than the original buttons; that's no problem). There's a size table on the site.
