Jazz Up Your Outfit With The Smallest Accoutrement

Silk lapel flower buttons, as I like to call them instead of the simple and much easier to say 'boutonnière' , are such a small but infectious little accoutrement this season. They have been gaining momentum throughout the last two years in the #menswear sphere of influence. The charge, in my opinion, was lead originally by Lanvin's Albert Elbaz but since then it has taken on all sorts of different modes from imitation silk flowers to real flowers to pins with all sorts of things on them which push the boundaries, I assume, of what could be considered a 'boutonnière' and what should be given some other name. If you are looking around then I can recommend Fort Belvedere on The Gentlemen's Gazette, Patrick Johnson, Charvet on Mr Porter and Lanvin on Mr Porter.

For something a little different, we do of course offer our own spin. Ours are made by hand in Sydney and are 4.2cm in diameter. They are then fixed at the back to a shank corozo button made exclusively for Le Noeud Papillon. The only problem is you must make sure you open up your lapel button hole which has probably been firmly stitched closed since you bought your suit. Well, time to open it up.  Shop them now.
