Have you ever wondered why there’s those random loops on the shoulders of winter coats?
Well, apparently, they serve a purpose.
Francheska Horsburgh recently took to Twitter to reveal her discovery.
She wrote: ‘Taken me 18 years to find out that the weird shoulder buttons on jackets is to hold your bag in place so it doesn’t fall off who knew’.
Francheska also shared a photo of her bag strapped in using the shoulder loops for demonstration, and the tweet has gone viral with more than 67,000 retweets and 166,000 likes.
Most people were blown away by the discovery

One mentioned that these shoulder straps are often used in military uniforms.
They were originally designed to keep back packs, ammunition pouches or bayonets from slipping off the shoulder.
