.....put bright white buttons on a man's 100% cotton black and dark grey print short sleeve shirt????

I took 'em off and replaced 'em with dark grey....now that's a classy looking shirt!

What weird things do you see out there that we would never do on garments we sew?

a couple of years ago, I bought some cardigans (ivory, gray, black, navy and brown) and all had the same brown woven leather look buttongs. I replaced the buttons on all of them. Not neccessarily buttons that match, but they certainly go better than what was on them.

What are they thinking - "what's the cheapest way to do this?"

I once (long, long before thinking of learning to sew) a BEAUTIFUL teal/blue/cream boucle jacket. I loved it. It had the butt-ugliest buttons on it. I couldn't believe they would put such hideous buttons on such a beautiful jacket. Ugh.

Otherwise, it's just a style issue. Either you're gonna wear a bag or you're going to put your entire body on display at the middle of the line retailers.

They were thinking "How are we gonna use up all these white buttons?" LOL

(Just an extension of what's cheapest - either they got a deal on the white buttons (way more then actually needed) or had just finished a run of white shirts, and didn't want to take the time to reload whatever they use to dispense buttons.)

I'll never understand lining summer dresses in polyester. It's super cheap but so incredibly uncomfortable! I don't know how people wear it!

I know, the white buttons! One of my coworkers has this cute black shirt with pink print that turns out to be little hearts (you need to be face to face to realize this!) and the glaring, stark white buttons with BLACK thread, just in case you could overlook the buttons!!!

She doesn't sew and I won't offer (long story) but I would sooo change them out, I makes me twitchy to look at her blouse, LOL!

I would never place a "dry clean only" label on a cotton/poly blend shirt. Actually come across a couple of those in menswear....
