I'm looking to replace some button on an overcoat. I was wondering wear is a good place to buy high quality buttons on the internet?

Wow, great link. You're a wealth of information...I'm gonna have to stop by this place. I'm curious, did you end up buying anything when you went?
Why not return it?Well, I know Ben Silver does real gold monogrammed blazer buttons for ~$1K, but that's probably not what you're after... It's a coincidence that you posted this just now, because not 5 minutes ago I received a "Nordstrom single-breasted 46L" navy wool overcoat I'd bought on ebay. Â Nice pick-stitching details and peaked lapels. Â I put it on, and the shoulders felt like a vise while the waist was impossibly large. Â I looked again, did a double-take at buttons sewn right on top of buttonholes, and eventually realized it was a German 46 DB that somebody "expanded" to an SB.Â I need to find about 4 more buttons to restore it to its original state, after which it can make one of you 38L or 40L beanpole types happy.
def. intrested are they button in good shape?demeis, I might be able to help you out. Â I picked up a vintage Brioni overcoat off eBay; the only thing I don't like about it are the leather buttons. Â If I can find them, I'm going to replace them with horn--and have a whole bunch of leather buttons to spare. Â Let me know if you're interested.
