Is it true that all authentic Lacoste shirts come with mother of pearl buttons?

That an authentic Lacoste top should only use mother of pearl buttons is not a criterion set in stone.

Today, a number of genuine Lacoste shirts do sport plastic buttons. This was confirmed by buyers who purchase only from official Lacoste retail outlets and premium boutiques. 

Don't be surprised if the buttons of your long-sleeved shirt or striped tops don't feel cold to the touch. Plastic is in, even among expensive designer brands like Lacoste.

Here's what some of the authentic Lacoste aficionados attest:

"Classic pique (may) have 2 mother of pearl buttons. Stripes design lacoste shirts have different...buttons."
- Rona

"I just came back from Macy's. The buttons and material change... depending on the market/country." 
- Ceschr

"All polo shirts in the sport range have Lacoste engraved in the button, and on the casual range they are pearl." 
- Jon

"I own loads of Lacoste and they vary in fabric quality, buttons... But they have a common denominator... the very detailed crocodile logo." 
- Mike

Verdict: Not all genuine Lacoste shirts come with mother of pearl buttons. Only the classic pique shirts from the vintage collection do. Other shirt styles may have buttons made of plastic... and surprisingly, even with the word "Lacoste" printed on them.
