We love when you write to us with fun questions. One of you wrote: “Why do we leave the bottom button of our vest undone?
This was the only picture I could find of me that has a good shot of the bottom of my vest. This photo was taken on a really hot day as I was waiting to go into an appointments class. (I know my hunt whip should be facing backward.) My friend had just handed it to me (remember I had a little case of heat stroke.) I had switched it before I went into the ring!
Anyway, this is what we have been told about the button question. The tradition started after one of the Kings got fat and couldn’t do his up. Since he couldn’t, no one else could either!! We would love to hear any other stories you have been told about the bottom button. We love this stuff!!
If you didn’t already know to leave your bottom button undone, now you do. Just remember to leave it that way, you never know when you might run into the King!
