    When you hang button-up shirts, are you supposed to hang them buttoned to the bottom? I usually button the top button or two and hang them. Is this wrong?

    I button the first and third buttons. Anything more just seems like a waste of time.

    I button the top two to prevent the neck from stretching on the hanger and then every other button to the bottom.

    Could be overkill.

    I button the whole shirt (not the cuffs, of course). The top two are the only two I unbutton to take it off the hanger and put the shirt on anyway.
