What’s the difference between “Button-up” and “Button-down”?|Fashion 101² DAY 3

A Button-up shirt is with a separated front that encloses entirely with buttons.

A Button-down shirt is with the front buttons, as well as the buttons on the end of the collars. It was originated around the 20th century with English polo players, who started this style to keep the collars from blowing up into their faces while playing. Then Brooks Brothers introduced this style to Americans. “Button-down” quickly became a classic.
