    New buttons on an old jacket

    Last year I bought some lovely silver buttons made by Brook & Sons, Edinburgh 1910 of shaped circular outline with intertwined mythical beasts. There were only six but I had them copied and have recently swapped them out on my Meyer & Mortimer Regulation Doublet made in 1946. Very pleased with the result, I'm looking forward to an opportunity to get dressed up.
