Any opinions on snaps versus actual buttons for the denim shirts? I'm kinda partial to buttons, but I'm worried buttoning a 16.5 oz shirt might be kinda rough, and might result in losing a lot of buttons.
quick questions that i didn't think warranted its own thread:
1. am i correct that, if i use saddle soap on a leather product, i should apply some sort of conditioner/oil/balm on it afterward to replenish the oils? i understand that most saddle soaps have some sort of conditioning agent in it, but it seems like applying some sort of conditioner afterwards wouldn't hurt.

i'll be vacationing in brazil (rio) and argentina (buenos aires) in february. is there anything cool/unique that's fashion-related that i could pick up as a souvenir there? or even something that'd be way cheaper in those countries?
so i've decided that i'm going to set a short-term goal of dealing with my stagnant 401k from an old job. i've read in tons of places that you should decide whether to keep your money in an old 401k based on whether the fees/earnings are good, but i have no idea how to judge this. what is considered a high amount of fees? and what's considered a good rate of return?

am i correct in assuming that i could go through the process of rolling my 401k over into a roth ira on the internet? is there a specific company i should go to? i have no idea how to shop for something like this lol
