Which wrist should my watch be on?
I'm a woman and I button from the bottom up so I don't miss any buttons. There are no rules about how to button your clothes. Good grief.

Wear your watch on whichever wrist is comfortable for you.

Button any way you want as long as your shirt isn't crooked. I never heard of a right or a wrong way. Same with shoe tying

I wear my watch on my left wrist but have seen left handed people wear it on their right wrist.

There is no handbook, law or general guidelines regarding how to button your shirt, where to place your wrist watch *other than on your wrist*, how do tie your shoes, which socks to wear, what color tie goes with your underwear or which sweater the guinea pig should wear each day.
Whatever is your preferred method is how you should do things and you should not pay attention to the
*professionals that are self proclaimed* in the fashion arena.

Shoe laces? My God, the laces go outside over inside.

And the watch always on the left wrist. Always. No excuses.
You must not be left handed.

A more important question, rather two, is whether one should put the left or right sock on first and before or after your underwear.
You forgot one, a sock and a sock, or a sock and a shoe? I always put on my underwear before my socks,
and the socks go left first, then right. Same with shoes.

I must be an anomaly, because I start buttoning my shirts in the middle, down to the bottom, then from the middle up. The mirror prevents mis-buttoning.

My husband puts his right sock on first............

The OP has to be a woman - it's inconsequential. Such trivial thoughts like "which way should I button my shirt" does not enter men's thoughts although mysteriously it might be an important topic to a woman. We don't think about it, we don't care, it's simply done.
Our minds are full of other important stuff like sports, woman, beer, and sometimes work stuff.

I guess I too button starting in the middle most of the time. How to put on your socks and shoes was demonstrated in All in the Family. Meathead explained it to Archie that it is a sock and a shoe so that if you have to leave the house because it is on fire you can stand on one foot and have that foot still stay dry instead of two feet in socks but wet.


I know I put on shoes and socks differently in the summer and the winter. In the winter I will put on my socks and slippers and not put on my shoes until I leave the house. In the summer, if I need to wear socks I will put them on as I am leaving and then it is a sock and a shoe, not sure which foot is going to be first though. with retirement and summer coming it will be no socks and no socks
