Button, button, who’s got the button

Broken buttons are the most common damage to shirts, sweaters and blazers – but specialty buttons are not easy to replace. Save the extra buttons stitched into new clothes. That way you don’t run the risk of having to replace them all if one or two begin to crack. If it is a favorite fashion piece, check out a local fabric store and find buttons that are similar, or if you are lucky, the same and buy them right away. That will prevent you from going on the hunt the next season when one breaks, and you will rest easy knowing that your investment is protected. And remember, snazzy new buttons can dress up old sweaters and shirts – bring them to our alterations department for replacement in a jiffy.
