It is all important, but a nice button is interesting. Attach the buttons not with an even stitch, but forked, meaning with a three pronged crisscross. Use a normal thread - a bit thick, resistant. The button must be sewn in place, with a bit of a stem, it should be a little loose, not as if it was glued on. You make a knot and it's done.
