Amazing! Why Men’s Shirt Buttons Are On The Right While Women’s On The Left

The curious case of Ben…no wait, Button. Just Button. Ever wondered or even noticed that why there is a different placement of buttons on men’s and woman’s shirt. The reasons are bizzre ranginf from horses to Napolean, hilarious right? Well, I wear man’s clothing all the time, but had never noticed that men’s shirt buttons are on right while women have them on left. The theory behind this is intruging and you would love to know that history is everywhere in the creation. The door at your home also had an inventor, you know? Of course, the trend carried on due to some reasons and aslo that manufactures  wanted to keep the difference to differentiate between men’s wear and women’s wear. Here are theories, true or untrue, which state why the difference originated.

A scheme of Napolean

Napolean’s portraits usually had his right hand tucked into the coat which was possible if the buttoning was from left to right. But, the women had also started mocking and mimicking him, sticking their hands the same way. Thus, he gave an order to have buttons on opposite side of all women’s clothing.

Women Dressed By Servants.

In the days of the yore, rich women had servants to dress them up while men dressed themselves. And since servants were right handed, it was easier to shut the buttons if they were on the left. Seriously? How tough would it had been otherwise?!

Women rode sidesaddle on the horse while men sat astride

Men sat astride and usually rode on the left side of the road as they needed right hand to hold swords the left side had to overlap the right while drawing them in order to avoid hilt of the sword from getting stuck in the coat or shirt. Imagine, if the sword got stuck and they tore their shirts first? Women, on the other hand, sat sidesaddle to the left and buttoning on the left did not let any wind enter into their shirts.

Equal, but different.

Ah, feminism again! Women wanted to be treated equal but also, that they are different than men. Thus, as there were many other features borrowed from men’s clothing, they thought off making this feature a bit different.
