Button question
« on: Dec 23, 09, 06:02:43 pm CST »

I know this sounds dumb, but what do you call the type of button that screws on? Like the kind Sandlar uses on their boots.
My leather pirate coat uses the same type of button.

I mention Sandlar because I lost one of the skull and bones buttons from my boots and I figure if I can find the same ones my coat has I can change the boot ones out to match my coat.

Thanks.

Ask Dev, she makes clothes.  She'd know.

"Screw-Backs"

Either "conchos" or "buttons"...

Leather Factory has different ones. Sandlar's are custom for them...

I've also seen some buttons that are built up on a chicago screw rivet type assembly.
