This is a highly informative article about the Amish.  I had always wondered where the name came from; now I know.  The mixture of 1740’s fashions and 21st century usages is most interesting.  The pictures of hook-and-eye fasteners is useful ... though I would guess that by the 21st century, buttons are actually less noticeable than these apparently larger devices.  Thanks very much.
