Extra buttons and other attachments


There is halachic debate regarding whether one may travel outside an eruv on Shabbos wearing a shirt that has extra buttons attached to it. Those who permit it contend that the buttons are considered nullified to the shirt, and many people are lenient along these lines.

A similar approach permits travelling outside an eruv with clothing that has a laundry tag or a shaatnez-certification tag stapled to it.

(Rivivot Ephraim 1:242)

Have a great day,
