Do the Amish have buttons or zippers on their clothes?

They do not have zippers. Amish clothing styles are simple and meant to be functional. Clothing is made at home out of plain fabrics and is usually dark in color. Lighter colors are used for younger children and sometimes for summer shirts and dresses for adults. Amish men wear straight-cut suits and coats without collars, lapels or pockets called mutza suits. Most men wear black. Their trousers never have creases or cuffs and are worn with suspenders. The wearing of belts is forbidden, as are sweaters and neckties. Men's shirts fasten with traditional buttons in most orders, while suit coats and vests fasten with hooks and eyes. Their pants are made with a flap in the front held closed by buttons to avoid the use of a zipper.
