Sleeve buttons were used on the sleeves of men's shirts and women's shifts and are often confused with cuff links. It is believed that people of all social classes wore them; they were also issued to soldiers of several military regiments including the 17th of Foot in 1776 and the 42nd Royal Highland Regiment in 1778.
Our sleeve buttons are made of excellent quality 1/2" buttons and are available in brass or German silver. The picture shows the front and reverse of the sleeve buttons to illustrate the figure-eight attachment.
Made in the USA.
