I ordered two different colors of toggles from woodbuttons - great service, btw- which arrived in a couple of days, to see which would best complement the vest. The dark 'walnut' won out over 'burntwood'. They come in packs of 12, reasonably priced, so now I have plenty of toggles on hand. I ordered them with holes instead of shanks. I used 4 toggles instead of the 5 called for, as the top buttonhole was too far up on the v-neck and would have looked weird.
