    Vintage 30s SA FBI badges

    Folks, Just a quick question (that I couldn't answer via a search): Can anyone tell me (approximately) what year(s) the little, chrome flat hook/clasp on men's pants waistbands came into fashion, and replaced the button? I seem to recall seeing a photo of a pair of late 20s-early 30s suit...
