Sometimes a little bit of flavor in a shirt comes entirely from the buttons. Today we are discussing how to judge the workmanship of a piece of clothing through the detail of buttons.

Many people judge the quality of a shirt by the quality of the fabric, but often ignore the detail of the buttons. Especially with custom-made shirts, buttons can give a custom-made shirt a truly custom feel. Different styles of buttons generally match different styles of shirts, and each type of shirt has its own regular buttons that match it.

Buttons are divided into natural buttons and artificial buttons

1.Natural button

Horn button

Horn buttons are usually the best and most expensive buttons. Mr. Mahon, a top tailor in Savile Row, said: "Savile Row suit buttons must be ground from the horns of some animals. This is a symbol of quality. Horns The buttons come from buffalo horns, which will naturally appear black or light yellow or spotted. The ones with better hardness are mostly black buffalo horns. The lines on the horns will be different. The more high-end the suit, the more regular the lines will be.
