Ten-Second Takeaway

The Exquisite Co. makes bespoke royal buttons and cuff links perfect for traditional attire like sherwanis, coats or even blazers for men.

What’s In Store?

080916_the-exquisite-coIt all started with a hunt for cooler buttons for a family wedding in 2014. Founders Arpit Mantri and Mili Gajera just wanted some cool-looking buttons as an alternative to mass-produced and plain buttons available in the market. From there spun out The Exquisite Co, an endeavour to provide a regal touch to every man’s wardrobe.

The buttons and cuff links are handcrafted by artisans in Meethdi, just a little outside of Jodhpur. These skilled artisans {aka karigars} have for decades been working for royal families. If you have a family crest, or a design that you want to show off, get with these designs. Sitting pretty on blazers, coats or even sherwanis, we think these make for a perfect fit for special occasions.

The metal they offer for the buttons ranges from classic brass, copper to pure silver monochromes. The enamel for the coating also can be customised to blue, yellow, mustard whatever colour you have in mind. Do keep in mind, brass starts from the lower end and moves higher up if you want pure silver ones.

How Does It Work?

The first step is to get in touch with them, either over phone or email. They have their own catalog of designs. If you like any, it can be made and delivered to you within seven days {including delivery time}. However, if you want a custom design, then it’ll take approximately 20 days including delivery day.

So, We’re Saying…

With the festival season in full throttle, and traditional Indian attire everywhere, men can now get their own choice of cuff links and buttons to jazz their outfits. In fact, the products are shipped in velvet boxes for future storage purposes.

#LBBTip: If you’re in Mumbai, you can personally can go and check the samples yourself, or Arpit will come over with the catalog.
