I've been looking at tailcoats from Clermont Direct,and am very impressed.They're barathea wool with ribbed silk facings,and the trousers look like they have a double braid!One thing,the buttons are uncovered (maybe horn but probably plastic).

Here are the links:

What do you think?I can live with uncovered buttons (not sure if anyone else here can) and side adjusters on th trousers.

My fear is that they may be plastic.I suppose I could order some black horn (or corozzo if I can find it) buttons if necessary.Oh,and I wore black jacket and striped trousers,and recieved several compliments.
