I'm almost positive they're the same buttons. The rim looks the same for sure and the swirls match up to what I used to think was a gold circle. I think that other picture just looks off for some reason.
Crap... well that just means I'll have to re-do it down the road... no time now. Need this done by next weekend... Care to share where you picked up your gimp trim? The 1/2" was the best I've been able to find so far. :/Yes, but I used narrower trim than you did (I think 10mm - see earlier in the thread). I also consciously left off the top waistcoat pocket entirely in the interest of time. Probably going to end up remaking the whole thing.
Jack, here's where I hid the links to the gimp I ended up using a page or so ago.here are links to the trim I'm using: Sewing-Online.com or TheClothShopLondon.com
The ebayer from whom I got the crochet-covered toggle buttons.
For the fob, I'm using a 1-Euro coin.
Awesome shot - thanks! Yeah - the hat is the most surprising thing about that image - it looks mad short. Great shot of the tie, though - I'll be wanting to proceed to that look at some point, as well as the scarf.
Thinner = perhaps easier, but by no means easy. I spent several days on the trim alone - all by hand. It's worth it, and seriously don't sweat the extra width for now. We are so much more nit-picky here than anyone who sees you in person will EVER be.Not gonna lie... That trim on the front of the coat is kind of a pain... I'm sure the thinner trim would be easier,
