    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Perhaps a stupid question, but are these real shell buttons? The photos of the back of the buttons don't really look like shell. Pardon the question if the answer should be obvious. [​IMG]

    Hello, the answer is Yes. I only offer real Mother of Pearl shell buttons. They are among the thickest available anywhere and are cut from Australian oyster shell.

    The backs are made "clean" during the drilling and polishing phase at the factory in Italy, which means there are no rough shell pieces left. You may be thinking of Trocas shell buttons, which are much more likely to have those dull pieces left on the back. Some lesser quality MOP buttons may also have that.

    Hope that helps!

    Because this thread is quite old, I was wondering about the availability of the AK smoke and the standard smoke?

    I will send you a PM now with the details!

    Please note that all the MOP shirt buttons in this thread are still available; however, the blue and green buttons from the other thread are currently sold out.

    Thanks.

    Update 12/15/2014:

    All the buttons in this thread are still available. Just wanted to send a quick update and let everyone know that when it comes to the smoke color buttons, if you happen to have a preference of very dark and more opaque, I can sort those out for you so just let me know when you order.

    cheers,
    SP

    Thanks for your interest, however, I do not have any MOP buttons for suit jackets. My other thread has buffalo horn suit buttons for sale in black and brown, though.

    I did look into MOP suit buttons but the demand seems to be very low and the cost was quite high so I decided against it.

    cheers,

    Are these still available?

    If not, can someone advise me on where to find proper button sets to replace broken buttons on my custom shirt?
