Have you often wondered what the loop on the back of your button-down shirt means? Probably not, because you probably didn’t even notice it until now. It’s the little piece of looped fabric where the pleat meets the yoke right in the center of the back of the shirt. Did you know that these actually had a meaning back in the day?
The loops don’t really mean anything now since much has changed in the world, but they held great meaning back in the ’60s. We’re not even 100% sure if people back then knew the meaning of it, but reports say that this was definitely a fashion statement.
