WHO WEARS IT BETTER?

Everyone loves buttons and badges – but some people seem to wear them with more panache than others.  So, just for fun…. who wears it better?

Jacob Rees-Mogg – seen here at a recent hustings in a rather flamboyant rosette and centre button.

To wear a badge of this size, you certainly need the self-confidence to match.

Bit showy for our liking, but it does grab the attention, so we guess it does the job.

 

 

Jane_Warton,_1910

 

Lady Constance Bulwer-Lytton, a.k.a Jane Warton, Suffragette and campaigner – protesting in Liverpool 1910.

Posing as a seamstress (Jane Warton) – the badge and enamel pins fit in well with the outfit.

Not too over-elaborate, but just enough to show alliance and call attention to the cause.

 

 

 

CONCLUSION

We think that Lady Constance pulls it off here.  She shows just how to wear a badge with flair and class.  Sorry Jacob – you forgot the first rule of button wearing: only wear a badge as big as your face if you are under 10 years old.

WINNER:  Lady Constance

  1. I make a variety of 2.25 inch, myself, I’ve not had much luck at all with 1 inch.
    … I might add that anyone with such a large “pinback” is trying to make up for some shortcomings.
