Buttons on clothes

「button clothes」の画像検索結果

  Western clothes have buttons right

for men. This is convenient because

the majority of men are right-handed.

It's easier for them to use the right hand

when buttoning up. Why, then, do women's

clothes have buttons on the left, even

though most women are also right-handed?

Is this a kind of discrimination? In fact,

there is a reason why women's buttons

are on that side. In the past, buttons were

quite expensive and only very rich people

could afford them. Women in such wealthy

families had servants who dressed them.

Therefore, to make it easier for the servants,

buttons were put on the left.
