only in SF can you get away with this and make someone like me laugh.

The real reason I get buttonfly nowadays is because girls seem to like ripping them all open in one fell swoop. Aside from that, most makers of clothes that I like tend to make all their pants and jeans with button-flies.
I have not noticed it any more of a pain to re-button the fly than it is to zip one up.
I guess the weird bulging is the real reason for button flies and I had never really known why before this post.
I think chicks do like to unbutton them all at once. However, when taking a piss at a urinal, you can't tell me that a zipper isn't more convenient.
I love chinos. They can be dressed up or down for almost any occasion. I am wearing a pear of BR ones right now. I end up having all my chinos recut to my specifications so I usually buy things on sale or pay more if they require less alteration.
I bought some of the Urban Chinos that were in GQ and they were reasonably slim but weren't in my size. I probably would have held on to them but didn't realize at the time that pants were so heavily alterable. I liked the durable feeling fabric that didn't seem like it would wrinkle or stretch after a little bit of wearing.
I just checked the Dockers site and the Urban chino looks like it got a new pic on the site, they look awful with that low waist, horrible shoes, and seem baggier than the standard fits pictured next to them.
If I see a pair of Dockers at Macy*s on sale then I think I will pick a pair up and have them cut to my usual specifications so I can wear them to work.
