Brass Buttons

Jacket buttons come in many different sizes and materials. Jackets also serve many different functions. You would not wear a tuxedo jacket to work. Nor should you wear a jacket that has brass buttons. The brass buttons don’t say, “Trusted professional!” They say, “I seem to think I’m a Navy admiral who’s forgotten the rest of his dress blues.”

Are we too late? Do you already have these button fiascoes in your closet? Don’t throw them out, just wear them to dress-casual functions without a tie.
