Quick dumb question: Why do some OCBDs have one horizontal button hole at the bottom of the placket, when all the others are vertical?

Bueller? Anyone?:cool:

My mom got her college degree in tailoring, and I've asked her this question.

It is harder for a button to come out of a button parallel to the direction it is being pulled. Since the most horizontal strain on a shirt are at the collar and the last button these two are generally horizontal so they don't come out as easy. I have a few cheap shirts without the horizontal button on the bottom and they come out rather easily.
