Watch the movie Benjamin Button. Ask your grandmother to sew you a sweater with your favorite style buttons. Design your own custom button you can wear proudly.... too many pieces of flare?.. I don't think so!
In the world of fashion most three button suits have gone out of style and most modern suit jackets have 2 buttons.
The national button society officially started to recognize the art and appreciation of collecting buttons in 1938. In the old days, kids used to collect and play a variety of games with buttons...sadly these days more digital distractions entertain our children rather than the creative imaginations needed to make games with different size and shaped buttons. Archeologists often find buttons made of rock, and other natural substances are uncovered during excavations. Long after the material of clothing has been returned to the earth, stone buttons can tell a tale of style of years gone by. Luxury shirt designers and makers of fine clothing apparel these days, will usually include a spare button or two with the purchase of a pair of pants or shirt, in case a button is accidentally torn off and lost.
