  • The Boat Shoe was invented by Paul Sperry.

  • The sole of the shoe was modeled after his dog's paw;

  • the dog has no memory of this.

  • Men who wear Bow Ties are seen as older, smarter, brainier, and Republicaner.

  • This button was inspired by polo players who'd put buttons on their collars to keep them from flying up while playing.

  • While we're on the subject of polo, Polo Shirts were created for tennis, not polo.

  • But, back to buttons on collars.

  • Shirts with button-down collars are called button-down shirts,

  • but shirts that button in the front and don't have button-down collars are called button-front shirts, not button-downs.

  • The triangle on the front of some sweatshirts, was originally put there as extra fabric to absorb sweat.

  • The YKK that is on all of your zippers stands for Yoshida Kogyo Kabushikikaisha.

  • And women shirts button on the opposite side as men's,

  • because women used to be dressed by servants, and this way the button would be in the servants right hand, as it is for men dressing themselves.

  • One in eight men surveyed confessed to wearing their underwear two to three times between washes,

  • and three of three people we just surveyed said, "Eww," after hearing that.
