People like Steve Kiddle and Richard Knight will them for their businesses but quite if you can buy individual ones and the tool to fit them is probably unlikely.

Try a shoe repair shop, as they usually have a selection of press studs, rivets, etc, as usually they also repair handbags, leather jackets and the like.

Your best bet Bruce is to try out arms fairs, some dealers have a bit and bobs box, or tatty webbing lying about, all the best.

Hi Bruce

Try this ebay link. I'm afraid it's all modern stuff but as a last resort it might work.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_odkw ... s&_sacat=0

If not maybe look at getting some trashed original kit and try to take the studs off that.

Cheers

Matt
