This is something we have never even thought about!

Perhaps you’ve never noticed, but men’s shirts really have buttons on the other side from women’s. Why is that?
Others are now running to the wardrobe to see if this is indeed the case, while some now recall a chance drunken conversation about it in the pub.
The weird notion your friend came up with regarding the situation that lasted much too long is probably still remembered by those who remember those intoxicated conversations in the bar.
And let’s be honest, it had no validity, did it?
Why then are the buttons for each gender on different sides? There are several theories on the subject, most of which have historical roots, but there is no official explanation as to why men’s shirts have buttons down the right side and women’s do not.
First off, because men’s clothing typically contained weapons, it is believed that men’s buttons were on that side.
Chloe Chapin, fashion historian and Harvard University Ph.D. candidate in American studies, previously told Today: “I think it’s important to question which time period we’re talking about, since shirt and jacket buttons are a relatively new phenomenon.
“But as a general rule, many elements of men’s fashion can be traced back to the military.”
Paul Keers, author of A Gentleman’s Wardrobe, seems to agree, having told The Guardian: “A gentleman’s sword was always worn on the left side, so that it could be drawn with the right hand.
“If a jacket buttoned right over left, the handle of the sword would be likely to catch in the jacket opening when drawn, so any serious swordsman would demand a tunic which buttoned left over right.”
But even while this might be the case, it doesn’t exactly explain why women’s buttons are on the other side, particularly given that the majority of individuals are right-handed.
Melanie M. Moore, the creator of the women’s blouse company Elizabeth & Clarke, offered her theory in an additional interview with Today.
Wealthy women back then did not dress themselves – their lady’s maid did,” she said.
“Since most people were right-handed, this made it easier for someone standing across from you to button your dress.”
According to the Smithsonian Magazine, other potential explanations include the assertion by some that many mothers breastfeed while holding their infants in their left arms or the fact that Napoleon “mass-produced clothing that was intentionally difficult for women to put on.”
However, the exact reason why the buttons are on opposing sides will never be known.
Mark Zuckerberg Finally Explains Why He Always Wears A Grey T-shirt To Work
He’s finally revealed the reason why!
Picture this: Mark Zuckerberg, who became one of the youngest billionaires ever, has this one outfit he wears like it’s his superhero costume. Whenever he’s in public, boom, it’s the gray t-shirt time.
So, you might think he’d have a playful reason for this, right? But hold onto your keyboards because his answer is pretty serious.
Back in 2014, during his very first public Q&A session, Zuckerberg dropped this knowledge bomb: “I really want to clear my life to make it so that I have to make as few decisions as possible about anything except how to best serve this community.”
Translation: He’s got a lot on his plate serving over a billion Facebook users, so he doesn’t want to waste precious brainpower on things like choosing what to wear each day.
Oh, and guess what? He’s got a bunch of those same gray shirts. He said, “I’m in this really lucky position, where I get to wake up every day and help serve more than a billion people.”
To him, even tiny decisions, like picking breakfast or outfits, can zap his energy. So, he’s all about saving that brain juice for the important stuff. “I feel like I’m not doing my job if I spend any of my energy on things that are silly or frivolous about my life,” he added.
Fast forward almost a decade, and Zuckerberg is still all about that gray t-shirt life. Yep, he posted a pic on Instagram just a few days ago wearing one.
But here’s the twist: It seems he’s diversified his wardrobe a tad. He’s thrown in some navy blue crew neck long-sleeves, beige boxy shirts, khaki sweatshirts, and even a dusty pink marl knit number.
But let’s be real, we’ll always remember him in that trusty gray tee and jeans combo. It’s like his secret weapon for conquering the tech world!
Woman Told Top ‘Is Inappropriate’ By Disney World Staff
When personnel at Disney World approached a woman and told her that her top “isn’t appropriate,” the woman felt humiliated.
On TikTok, Alyssa Schueller shared her account of the incident, and the video has now received over 3 million views.
She is seen in the video being “escorted” to pick up a complimentary Disney World top since it appears that she was revealing too much skin.
“Guys, it’s true,” she wrote as the caption.
Schueller asserted that the event occurred at Epcot and claimed that when she visited Animal Kingdom earlier in the day, there was “no problem.”
“FYI, I was at Animal Kingdom ALL AM without issue,” the TikToker said.
“I visited Epcot, and this occurred. I returned to Alaska and experienced no problems.
“Disney must support a dress code if they want to be taken seriously. But the contradiction—please”
According to the Disney World website, the company “reserves the right to refuse admittance to or remove any person wearing dress that is regarded unsuitable or attire that could diminish the enjoyment of other guests.”
An additional woman was allegedly humiliated earlier this year when theme park employees allegedly told her that her shorts were “too short.”
She was challenged by a staff member sporting a “Police” shirt as she and her family were at the Frontier City amusement park in Oklahoma City, US.
A staff member was heard stating, “I’m going to escort you,” in a footage Bailey posted to her TikTok account. If you don’t provide the information I need, I’ll charge you with criminal trespassing.
One viewer questioned: “Since when does Six Flags have a clothing code? ” in the comments section. It appears to be harassment more than anything else.
They need to have informed her at the gate if she isn’t following the dress code, said another.
