Where to get horn buttons?

Does anyone know where to get horn buttons in Toronto? I just get a Boss (light/medium grey) suit from ebay and it does come with real horn buttons but their colour (dark, brownish grey with light brown shades) make the suit looks too casual, so I'm thinking to replace them.

I already tried the fabric district with no avail, btw. Unless I miss a rather secluded store in that area that you might know.

Or an online / mail-order seller is good too.

Actually I'd really prefer black, if they match the colour of the suit.

I would check Ebay listings, and stores by the name of "Tender Buttons." I think there are locations in Chicago and NYC, if not other places. Another option would be to call the top mens store in your area (if you are in canada, try Harry Rosen).

I seem to remember having a whole set of Oxxford buttons (extras --- from jacket closure to sleeve buttons). I need to look for them, unless I have already given them to Thracozaag ....

Have you tried calling Hugo Boss asking them to change the buttons for you? They should, considering the retail price on those designer suits.

I was thinkin....why not buy an inexpensive, used Oxxford jacket on ebay and use the buttons for your suit? There are several on ebay less than $50, which would be a good price for a set of good buffalo horn buttons for your Boss.

Here's a question for anyone. Pages 9, 10, and part of Page 1 have dissappeared from the shirt thread. Does anyone know a cure for this?

The suspense is definitely killing me.
