Where can I find some good looking buttons? Looking to give my bland peacoat a fresh look with some unique buttons... also the coat is super dark blue, almost black... so any suggestions are welcomed.

Tender Buttons was going to be my suggestion as well.

You could also try visiting your nearest thrifts/eBay to see what you can find. Peacoat buttons might be a challenge, but there are plenty of handsome vintage buttons out there. I bought a thrift coat not long ago, cut off the buttons and handed it back to the clerk to be baled and discarded. The coat had been a moth's meal, so at least I managed to give it one last use. And the whole set of buttons cost me a whopping 50 cents.
