(Manton @ June 08 2005,11:29) Do any RTW shirtmakers make the last buttonhole horizontal as a matter of course?
I have a shirt from Interno8 that has a horizontal second buttonhole up. Now that's an affectation.
What could you expect from the company that brought you the Polso Orologio

I just checked a few of my shirts and found the following; 2 Holt Renfrew shirts with horizontal bottom button but stitched in white, 3 of 4 JP Tilford shirts (house brand for Harry Rosen) stitched vertically in yellow for bottom button and 1 Truzzi shirt with horizontal bottom button. Samuelsohn and Tilford are the same company so possibly this is Holt Renfrew's source of their house brand shirts. I wouldn't be surprised since they also carry Samuelsohn suits. Yellow for Harry Rosen and red for Holt Renfrew?

Fray also has the button hole sideways, with a gusset like one would find in a sleeve around the hole. Also a fairly large flap of additional material that wraps toward the other side of the placket.

I enjoy the stitching around the last buttonhole in a contrasting color. It's just a fun, hidden detail.

To me, it seems like having a horizontal buttonhole on the bottom for RTW shirts would allow it to better accomodate fat dudes. Imagine buttonfly jeans with vertical buttonholes. If you sat down, you'd start tearing the fabric (well maybe not if you wear your jeans 28 sizes too large).

maybe i am silly...but i always thought it was a sign that you have reached the last button..assuming you button top down..

Yes, I've got two-year old twin boys who are early risers. Three hours of roughhousing & playing later, I often find myself in a zoned-out state as I absentmidedly get dressed for work. Staring out the window as I button my shirt, the horizontal buttonhole tells me it's time to put on my pants.

Wherabouts are you, if you don't mind me asking? I'm going to assume Ottawa/Montreal/Toronto area.

What? You button your shirt starting from the top button? Crazy.

No offense ... but a red buttonhole hidden in the pants is for Junior shirtmakers. Eventually Junior gets older and attains a greater degree of testicular fortitude:

No offense, but black tux, blue shirt, blue bow, red buttons... Mm... I'm thinking, either this is the only pieces he has in his wardrobe or he has a bit of problems with colours.... I wonder what shoes he was wearing.
