So you’re getting ready for that hot date and to impress your lady friend you decide to clad your Spartan body in something a little fancier than that free 99.9 KNIX radio station tee you’ve been rocking for 14 years.
So you grab that stylish shirt with buttons from your closet.
But what is it?
A button up, or a button down?
The answer is unequivocally, irrevocably and undeniably…..it depends.
When you tell your smoking hot wife you’re gonna wear a button down to Texas Roadhouse tonight what you’re really referring to isn’t the shirt at all, it’s the collar.
Stick with us here.
Any and every time someone says “Button Down Shirt” they are specifically referring to the buttons on the collar, whether they know it or not, that can be “buttoned down” to the shirt, preventing it from sticking up.
