Re: Please correct Amy Stran!

Anyone else remember wearing white oxford cloth (100% cotton) button down shirts (collar buttoned down) under a Shetland sweater with Levis or your HS uniform skirt?  Ahhh simpler days. 

 

Blouses buttoned up the front but not the collar.  Button down collars were preferred under pullovers sweaters because they looked neater under them and also under sweatshirts.

 

No liquid knit, fabrication, etc.  Nice to remember but I love all the fashion choices we have today and who cares what we call them.  Easy care fabrics (took forever to iron that oxford cloth) are a Godsend.  

 

I have Google to find exactly what I want.

In the grand scheme of things, does it really matter?? I'm sure people understand what was meant. Seems some are wound too tight and need to get some fresh air instead of taking the time to complain about such a thing.

Re: Please correct Amy Stran!

I always button down my button up shirts, and I unbutton them down too. Have I been doing it wrong? 😕

I've heard many people refer to a shirt that buttons as a button down shirt.  I think the definition has changed industry-wide since shirts with button collars aren't so popular anymore.


 

 

I agree with @Kachina624 

 

And besides....WHO GIVES A HOOT?  Seriously!!!

 

Just selling a shirt with buttons.

Nope - the industry has not changed its use of the phrase. It' just people who don't take the time to learn the correct descriptions, yet want to appear knowledgeable.


 

 

Gosh @Becky from Texas 

 

From reading the posts from @Zhills   and @Caaareful Shopper 

 

you are incorrect.

 

Once again, the dictionary has confirmed there is nothing wrong with what was said.

 

Why all the nitpicking?  Does it really matter to a potential purchase?

Many QVC customers don't speak fashion garment industry jargon, and don't think of a collar when they hear button down shirt. QVC knows their customers.

Seriously....do we have to correct each host for using their own terminology vs. what is considered correct??
