Generally one would associate sewing with women and would say that this is meant for the weaker sex and not for able bodies men who should rather be doing things that are more important than fix something as small as buttons. But let me tell you that sewing buttons is a very unique skill to possess for gentlemen as well as you never would realize as to when this skill could come to your aid and protect your self esteem or image. Imagine yourself out on a tour and maybe your collar button falls off and you just have minutes left to attend that seminar where a necktie is a must. Yes shirt buttons or blazer buttons do tend to fall off time and again and when your mom, sister or wife is not around it is purely a skill you would have not regret having learnt.
Let us see whether it is rather so difficult to sew buttons that men usually crib about. All you need is needle a bundle of thread, a pair of scissors and of course the button that fell of. At times you may not realize when or where the button fell off hence it is always advisable to carry a set of spare buttons similar to the original so that the new ones do not look out of place. Normally shirts and blazers do have extra or spare buttons sewed at the bottom for emergency use. It is always better to carry a sewing kit in your travel bag as well and in case you forget to do so do not hesitate to ask the hotel which normally do have sewing kits for emergency use.
