Buttons on a 1950s style British Police Uniform

Take a good look at these buttons – it may be the last any of us see of them. I collected my “Policemans Uniform” costume that I’ll be wearing for “Witness for the Prosecution”. (I’m “doing a Hitchcock” and have a small cameo role in the production). The uniform looks great but it they didn’t make policemen my shape in 1953 – as a result the uniform is very, very tight. The buttons could pop off and easily end up anywhere! I’m just hoping our wardrobe mistress can sort something out.
