Have you ever wondered about the frog closure, like the one on this 1970s red shirt, and where it came from? Well, leave it to the Fashion Institute of Technology to school you!

First of all, a frog closure is defined as a decorative braid and a spindle-shaped “frog” button that passes through a loop in the braid. They’re typically seen in military uniforms, usually in the 17th to 19th centuries, and they’re less functional and more, well, extra.

However, it wasn’t always this way. The pankou, or frog closure, evolved from thousands of years of Chinese knotting techniques. This knotting technique was first used in clothing in the 10th century. So, the knotted closure had a real function, but it became less functional and more decorative.

And there’s no reason you can’t have both decoration and function, as this shirt illustrates!
