    Do you have some reason to think there is some Judaism based reason for buttons on clothing? Without such an edit I don't think this is on topic. I have buttons on my shirt too but I don't ask about them here. – Double AA Dec 17 '18 at 18:25

The formal frock coat, on which they are based, traditionally had two buttons in the back. See this Wikipedia article about frock coats, which says

The formal frock coat only buttons down to the waist seam, which is decorated at the back with a pair of buttons.
