Boutonnière (French for ‘buttonhole’) are most easily located in the lapel buttonhole of a jacket. Not all jackets have buttonholes these days but we use a fine pin for our flowers and pushing it through a lapel presents little problem. All pins come with a protector which is a push fit on the end after the pin has been properly located and helps prevent pricked fingers.
