When it comes to the last detail for suiting, it is often the buttons that are taken for granted. With ready to wear suiting one often finds that one has merely to look at a button for it to fall off. Be a mite experimental. A trip to the delightful Button Queen in Marylebone offers a panoply of treasures – mother of pearl, metal, wood, leather and woven silk – some vintage – to inform your strident costume. Take the garment(s) in for not only accurate sizing but expert advice from the knowledgeable proprietor, an expert, if I ever saw one. Collector’s buttons from centuries ago are also available. Buttons do make a difference.
