27 New Blazer Button Styles

Britex Fabrics’ online store just received 27 new styles of blazer buttons. These are from an American company that has been in business since 1812…or 200 years! These stamped metal buttons are crafted with fine engraving tools to make individual dies, and are made to order. This American company even has a smudge of Hollywood glamour; they manufactured the buttons for the crew members in the movie, Titanic.  These high quality metal blazer buttons come in a multitude of finishes, including matte silver, antique silver, gunmetal, brass (gold), and antique gold. Our favorite is the one that is embossed with the USS Constitution, AKA “Old Ironsides”, which was  launched in 1797 and is the world’s oldest commissioned naval vessel afloat.
