Is there a bush-button trick that I don’t know about?

I find that when camping in Victoria I tend to lose more buttons than when I am at home.

Or is it just the terrain in Victoria that lends itself to the rapid loss and/or premature wearing out of the thread (cotton I think, but am not sure) resulting in the unnatural excess losses?

Three other things I need to know are…

1. What is the correct quantity of spare buttons, needles, thread (and thread colors) etc that should be carried in a button/recovery kit?

2. Can I get a good quality biodegradable button? Or is bone the best seeing as it is a natural occurance, and should I use a bone that is native to Australia?

3. Is there a way to rust proof the “press stud”? Or is it available in an alloy?

Thanks

Try t-shirts and jeans. I've never lost a button yet - mainly because I don't have any.

I generally find that if you go out far enough you can go au natural without scaring people - this aleviates the need for pesky buttons at all! just ensure the area is to your self. I didnt know the Catholic high scool girls would be camping next to me - honest!

Musty,

You could try a unitard ( body stocking ) , zero button loss and you wont scare anyone with your nakedness.

An optional cape can be added for special occasions, vehicle recovery, intimate moments.
