    Should one remove the extra buttons the manufacturer adds (in case you lose one) from one's shirts? It simply never occurred to me.

    I do. First, I think they look sloppy if they show, so I remove them along with any tags that could show. Second, if a button could break in the wash rendering your cuff useless, one of the spares could break just as easily. I have a box full of buttons, spare collar stays, yarn that comes with sweaters, etc.
