How to Change a Jacket Button

January 24, 2013 by Britex Fabrics 0 comments

San Francisco preppy well dressed man and fashion blogger, From Squalor to Baller, made this handy guide on updating jackets by replacing tawdry buttons with stylish ones, using classic horn buttons from the Britex Fabrics (and wrote about it.) We love that he carefully uses a needle to create some slack with the exterior button, and adds a back button for neatness and durability. He says, “A lot of people pay big bucks for things like hand-stitched horn buttons and you just did it yourself. Nice job.”
