I have been trying to locate a military uniform supplier in Toronto, named Ascot Clothes, without success. My reason for trying to contact them is to find a replacement scarce military button for a patrol uniform that I just bought from one of the frequent users of this site. The missing button is a screw-back epaulette button for an officer's patrol tunic.

It appears that Ascot has gone out of business, but there must be a source for military buttons. Can anyone point me in the direction of a company that may be able to help me with the button I am looking for.
