Button-down shirt

Never Button Down and Never Button Up

And on the subject of buttons, another American trait of recent comes to mind: Namely the uncultured habit of buttoning the bottom button on your jacket. Why this unseemly oversight has become popular across the Atlantic, I have no clue, but I do know that when it comes to buttoning your jacket, there is but one eternal rule: You may only button the bottom button if you're wearing a single-buttoned jacket. Which no gentleman would be caught dead in anyway, if not from Huntsman, the famous Savile Row tailor.
