Thread: BBS replacement buttons

    Default BBS replacement buttons

    Hi there,

    not sure if this is the right forum - I've lost some buttons on a pair of BBS pants. Do you know if it is possible to get some replacements?
    Was also thinking of just making my own - would anyone know what type of wood they are made from?

    Thx,
    rta

    Write to BBS or to the store where you bought it - they might help.

    Wood? I believe BBS uses leather and iron buttons...

    it's not wood, it's very thick and tough leather.

    also you can do with hard culatta if it's cheaper.
    You could visit some shoemakers localy who works with leather soles
    and ask them about manufacturing button for you.

    sorry for my bad english, i learned it from the book.

    I too am inspired by homeless people when I buy a $1,000 jacket. Why don't we just shit on them? Oh, fashion, sometimes I wonder why I bother...(Faust)

    Just saw it's been a while, but I've replaced them with some buttons from here: http://www.erdenlicht.net/frame.php?...10447&_lang=de

    I painted them black myself and drilled bigger holes to fit the laces. Looked good in the end
