Pant repair

One of the buttons (used for suspenders) on the back of my Bauer 1000 pants fell off. Does anyone know if I can get a new one to re-attach?

No! No buttons for you.

Go to a fabric store and buy a black button the same size as the other ones on your suspenders. You'll be amazed how many buttons there are in the world. It's really easy to sew (or have someone do it for you) the new button in place.

Buy a screw and post (e.g. http://www.writersstore.com/product.php?products_id=597), and two washers. Put a washer on the post, then put the post through the hole in your pants. Put another washer on the other side, then put the screw in... you should have a washer on either side of the pants. That won't be coming out for a long time, and the washer on the outside of the pants will be your "button".

Or you could just use a belt. I used to think it was heresy, then I saw how awesome RBK's inner belt system was.
