Saving the buttons

When the garment is too worn to be of use to anyone, the buttons must be cut off. Or at least that's what those of us who grew up with button jars in the house were taught. My favorite button jar originally contained Molle brushless shaving cream. I threw out some favorite jackets whose cuffs and collars can't be altered again to hide frayed or shiney or discolored areas. To be honest, they're all a bit broad-shouldered, too. I have some handsome buttons to remember them by, though.
