Bachelor buttons (or tack buttons or dungaree buttons) are best described as the button used on Levi-brand jeans.
It attaches with a sharp prong and is used in conjunction with a buttonhole.
Tack buttons bachelor buttons and dungaree buttons are interchangeable.

Approx. 5/8" (copper design slightly smaller)

Insert prong (nail) into jeans/pants (from the wrong side). An awl may be beneficial to make an opening for the prong.
Apply button over prong, push to keep together.
Place the jeans with button (side down) on FIRM surface.
Protect button face with a bit of cloth.
A block of wood on a sturdy table to protect the surface.
Hammer firmly, (from the prong side) to attach button.

    Great looking but a bit of a learning curve

    These were a little tricky at first. With the help of wonderful Katie in customer support, I mastered these no sew jean buttons and project accomplished. Had purchased enough for a second garment later. I would suggest ordering a couple extras to test the application process before trying to apply them to a finished project because they are more what you would find on ready to wear garments not the home sewing industry.  After mastered, they are beautiful quality, design, and seem durable.  Katie and I discovered that pounding squarely on the nail head side while protecting the button surface with scrap fabric and placed good side down on a hard, solid surface while pounding squarely on the nail head surface did wonders. Look great now!
