Q. Why is it all right for Amish men to have buttons on their clothes while women are restricted to using straight pins?
~ Kav Rees
It wouldn’t be very practical for men to use pins on their clothes, for a woman however it is much more practical to use pins rather than buttons. Women change their size much more often and using pins allows us to make adjustments when ever required without having to make a whole new set of clothes.
