• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Inspired by this thread, http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...ht=blazer+suit

I'm getting a navy jacket made and am debating between two shades of horn buttons:



Which is preferred, the light or dark?

As a follow-up, I'll most likely get a suit made at the same time. The dark are appropriate for any suit and the light could work on a casual navy jacket, correct?

I think horn buttons look great on blazers and sport coats. However, IMO I think they look out of place on suits.

I made a very similar jacket earlier this year and went for dark horn buttons (darker and less transparent than the buttons you pictured). I suggest you go with the darker buttons.

What do you mean by they look out place on suits?.

I'd go with the dark one out of those two, but I'd much rather have a medium option.
