    I have a DB navy blazer currently with gold buttons, nothing wrong with it but I am debating to inject new life into it by changing to white buttons. Then I saw these pics, those white buttons sure looked oversized. Anyone care to guess what size were they? Any opinion on these big buttons?[​IMG]

    Smoked mother of pearl would be nice. The examples posted above are all terrible.

    Color is subjective, I was more curious about the size of those buttons.

    Standard suit buttons are usually 32L (ligne) but DB suits buttons are often 34L or 36L. I am guessing that the high contrast also makes the buttons appear larger. Just be aware that larger buttons may not fit through your existing buttonholes, which would require them to be enlarged.

    Colour is subjective to a degree, but those jackets all fit terribly and the buttons do them no favours. Especially with a striped DB the whole thing is totally incoherent.

    The last one at least has some kind of harmony with the trousers, though you'll the bracelets, purse and massive watch to make the whole thing work.

    You can just measure your current buttons in mm and ask your retailer to provide buttons in the same size.
