If you're wondering what the connection is, one of the reasons lies in the old nurse uniforms, many of which used to button down the back, like this:

As far as I am aware, many nurses uniforms in Europe used to button down the back until fairly recently and even men's surgical gowns did as well...

France is the country of "exellence" concerning NYLON BUTTONED OVERALLS( for men and women .We pesonaly have lovely long long sleeved NYLON overalls with big buttons in all colours! Is so nice to feel yourself "rapped up in a long nylon overall and the crispy sound the nylon makes!And we have several kinds of buttonings ( on the side or completly in the back In summer we wear plastic pants under our nylon overalls (with nothing else! "it's so exiting!.We often put over our nylon overalls also pvc aprons with bib and crossed suspenders in the back too "the feeling is even better!TERRIFIC§ and if you go on the website EBAY FRANCE and write BLOUSES EN NYLON you'll see what I mean (theres practicly 1000 "BLOUSES EN NYLON to sell (ay very good prices too!
