Hello denim bros,

I just received a Wrangler Blue Bell jacket (a 1947 repro) from Japan, which I bought from Wrangler Japan through a proxy.  I received the jacket yesterday, they had packed it in a plastic envelope with zero cushioning and one of the buttons broke off.  It looks like a complete pain in the ass to get any kind of help / replacement and I'm wondering if I wouldn't just be better off keeping it and try to fix the button myself.  I've looked online for Wrangler replacement buttons but, alas, no such thing.  Thankfully the Wrangler buttons have remained pretty much unchanged since 47 so I'm not giving up hope.  One solution that I was considering was buying a generic button online and replacing the generic cover with the Wrangler cover that I would strip off the original button.  Easier said than done, I don't know if it has been done but might be worth a try.

Anyone out there who's run into a similar problem?
