A more important question, rather two, is whether one should put the left or right sock on first and before or after your underwear.
I find the opposite is true....if the shirt is on a little crooked around the neckline you could start out unevenly - but you always button the bottom button and it's easy to tell when it's even.

Wow...now that I read all the posts...people are WEIRD! I guess you assume that on something as basic as getting dressed people do it in the same order and in the same way...not true!

How does buttoning from the top down lead to uneven buttoning/missing buttons?

Unless the neck is perfectly centered...or you are looking in the mirror you can easily button unevenly...unless you're a guy wearing a tie and thus buttoning the top button. Women will very rarely button the top button (unless the neckline is dropped) and many times will leave the top two unbuttoned leaving more margin of error. However, man or woman, you always button the bottom button of a shirt so how can you ever be off by starting there?

Efficiency experts say you should button from the top and bottom at the same time.

I button from the middle. Or just never unbutton it in the first place (except the top button and just slip over my head ) Buttoning is a waste of time.

I rarely wear a watch, but when I do, I wear it on whichever wrist I feel like. I'm mostly ambidextrous, so I write/cut/eat with whatever hand I feel like using at the moment. Sometimes it depends on which hand I put a watch on.

Underwear before socks. Socks before pants usually (especially if thick socks and tight pants at the bottom). Shoes are the very last thing to go on.

Any other questions I can answer while I'm sitting here?

Which wrist should my watch be on?
Does it matter how you button a shirt? Just button the damn thing up and make sure the buttons are lined up. Not exactly rocket science. As far as the watch I guess I've never paid attention. I don't like to wear them.

People with a sense of style.
