And now for something completely different.

More of a question for Olafson, but I am posting it here in case others have some ideas as well.

For the guys doing French impressions, where do you buy uniform buttons? I am trying to get a full set of 85e buttons for a habit-veste I have ordered but every place I go to its either the incorrect ones or they don't have any left in stock. I know there's people that can get them somewhere so I wanna know where, so I can always order some myself if I ever have to.

Out of curiousity, where did you order the habit-veste?

I heard. I don't need anymore right now, but for future reference, how long does it usually take to get them and for how much apiece?

I buy them for 1 euro a piece and sold them for 1 euro a piece.
It varies how long it takes until they arrive. Between 2-5 months on average.
For now I am not going to give any more buttons to anyone outside of my own group though. And yes, that means the Dutch 85th is not going to get them from me anymore. Or at least not for a euro a button.. It is not like the 85th is going to appreciate them anyway.


I ordered a Habit from Valerie Richards a long time ago (During my super farb days). It never was finished in time and when it was, it did not fit properly, as she somehow assumed that I am much taller than I actually am. The shoulderflaps or epaulettes or however you call it in English were also wrong. I still have that habit veste here, never used. I only keep it in case one of my proper habits gets ripped and I need wool to repair it.

Good luck with yours.

Pretty sure she uses the imfamous 'english pattern' which used the pattern of a modern tailed jacket to make a habit-veste. Could be wrong, as she doesn't seem to have a website or facebookpage with her items on it. Either way, not that it matters as you literally cannot seem to get a proper habit-veste anywhere in this part of Europe.
