    Heres a happy medium. A few years ago I replaced black plastic Anchor buttons with metal ones. I agree with GDL that horn buttons don't look good on classic peacoats.

    Save the horns for something else. Black metal seems like a good alternative.

    Not a peacoat fan but I do agree with gdl, mrmax and chopped liver. Get metal buttons, maybe similar to what you had on the other peacoat.

    Say what you want, I quite like the look of buttons like these on a peacoat.

    For anchor buttons, those are quite nice, Cr. Nice buttonholes too :).

    The other metal ones remind me of

    I'm also in the market for horn buttons to replace the anchor buttons on my vintage pea coat. These look great. Could I bother you for the link to the button above?
