I'm looking for the buttons you find on your jean waistband. I've searched all over locally and on the web and all I can find are 11/16 or 5/8. I want something just a little bit bigger. The buttons on my rtw jeans are slightly larger so they have to be out there somewhere.


Nevermind, I found some on Amazon

For future reference, Etsy has some 20 mm ones, and Grommet Mart has 20 mm and 25 mm.

I looked at Grommet Mart, but I thought I had to buy in bulk. I'll check them out again. Thanks.

Cleaners Supply sells tack buttons by the tray and they are on sale at the moment.
This my help.

And there is always this possibility:
Homemade Button

Needs a little metalcrafting skills, but nothing serious.
