Remember when epaulets started showing up on everything? Maybe these buttons are the next evolution of unnecessary shoulder embellishment.
They’ve been seen on men’s nautical sweaters in the past, and I suppose if you’ve got a busted rotator cuff from fighting a marlin or something, then yeah, having a wider area to put your head through might be of some service. But like a few other things, shoulder sweater buttons seem to have more or less permanently migrated to the women’s side of the style aisle.
But would you wear one? Are these no different than the accent button(s) seen on some shawl collars? Or are you not a fan of those either, and these are even more of a deal breaker? Leave your take in the comments below…
