I figured I'd start this thread since this board is more detailed focused than others out there and we tend to geek out over the small stuff. Lets see some hardware

Sweet buttons Mark!

Always loved this simple steel button from a 1930's denim jacket I wish I'd never sold.

Anyone know how to remove suspender buttons/rivets? They look like these

I would try a drill press with a light touch to just eat through those fingers that are holding the button on.

you can also try pounding a nail set through the middle as long as the rivet behind it has a hole to fall into.  Maybe place it over a large nut .

I've always used a wire cutter, if you go low on the front side, the blades tend to slide right under the button and clip it nicely.
