That duck pant is amazing. Any closeups of the buttons? Are they sewn on or riveted?

I think I have some close up pics, sewn buttons for sure- I think shank or riveted Levi buttons were first being used when the Levi factory started in the late 1880's 88 or 89? I have hunted denim in a few places where the trash dumps date from the early 1870's  up until 1887. I've never found shank or riveted Levi buttons in any trash dumps that date up to 1887.
