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.
