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.

And there is always this possibility:
Homemade Button

Needs a little metalcrafting skills, but nothing serious.
