People are always asking here what buttons they should get on their blazer. Why don't we have a poll to see what is most popular. I've listed the most popular choices. If there is anything else that you prefer let it be known.

+1 my vote to brass. No point calling it a blazer otherwise, imo.

Horn, but not necessarily brown.

Interesting, is this based on any tradition or just your take on it?

I like enamel. I swapped out my brass buttons for enameled fleurs-de-lys. But then, I'm a Saints fan...

Just my take on it I guess. To me it just looks most traditional/stylish that way

I also voted "other" since I prefer enamel. I have four enamel-buttoned blazers, one smoked MOP and one brass.

One of my clients has 18K yellow gold buttons on one of his cashmere navy blazers.

Brass. I've had silver and horn but find that I prefer brass.
