    Nema, nada en vokoll found using the search facility so this is open to the hard core kitrats amongst you.

    Does anyone know where sand coloured slotted buttons (Canadian type,) can be purchased ?
    Because they're nearly squaddie-proof they've proved to be the mutt's on kit small children wear.

    The usual comments of cutting their clothing off prior to abuse expected if not welcomed but serious answers would be good too.
  2. Whatever, sew them on with dental floss. It's stronger than cotton and the wax makes it easier to work with.
  3. Keep a small block of beeswax in your sewing kit and run/drag the thread through it before using it does the same trick
  4. Beat me to it. He makes dessie smocks so he definitely can get them. I've bought DPM material for patching, OG velcro and buttons from him before, so he will likely sell them if you dop him a line.
