    Buying blazer buttons



    I'm having trouble finding buttons for a kid's DB blazer. My parents had one in their basement, but it's missing one of the front 6 buttons, and I'd rather just replace all of them to match.


    I could use the smaller sleeve buttons from a set for a men's blazer, but it seems like a waste. Where do you get buttons?


    I found these 5 buttons, but I need 6: http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-METAL-CUB-SCOUT-BUTTONS-BOY-SCOUTS-/130670540709?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1e6c92 37a5


    No connection to the Boy Scouts, but they seem to be pretty small, which is what I'm going for.

      Hmmm... $675 for a set of buttons is really tempting! lol

        Also check with your tailor. I have a Gieves & Hawkes navy blazer with G&H engraved buttons that was missing a sleeve button. I took it in to them to ask if they had any idea where I could get one and they had several in their collection and just put one on for me for cheap.
