    How long should a button shank be?

    Hello! How long should the shank for trouser buttons be? Learned from a video on Permanent Style (here) and ended up with a ~3/16 inch (or ~1/4 inch) shank. Can post better photos, if needed. Thank you!

    Substitute for Buttons?

    Hi All- My brother-in-law was in an accident some time back, and as a result lost a lot of dexterity in his fingers to do buttons and snaps. He has gotten around this by buying shirts that are way too big, having someone button them once after laundry, and then putting them on like t-shirts...

    Buttons open or closed when machine washing shirts?

    I suppose the title sums it up. Do you close all, some, or none of the buttons on your shirt when you machine wash them (front, gauntlet, cuff)? Any other details? Collars left turned down or do you flip them up? Turnback cuffs; do you unturn them or leave them folder back on themselves?
