We have defined a "Baseball" type collar to give it a much more urban and less conventional look.

For the Anecdote : "The Military Equipment Buttons".
The MILITARY EQUIPMENT Button has been in use since 1830/40 approximately. It became generalized around 1880 in all the weapons and services of the French Army and is present on the musettes, gas mask musettes and various equipment, tent covers, straight trousers and some breeches, some jackets (interior), and will be present on military effects until 1950/60.
It is present on model 52 and 54 (pockets), used in Algeria.
Buttons of this type from before 1940 are made of an alloy metal which gives a greyish shade and in general, they are either in super condition or completely rotten .
The post-war ones are also made of an alloy but based on aluminium and are very shiny... they become white with time.
