    That's why I won't buy button-fly jeans.

    Oh I have a few pairs of those 'button fly' pants, but I only do up the middle button.





    Same goes for all of my button front shirts.

    I mean, that's why I wear a tie, right? So if I don't button all the buttons of my shirt it doesn't even matter. I actually alternate which I button so I don't wear out the button holes prematurely!

    Though, to be honest. I'm a little terrified that I'm going to have to take a piss really badly and struggle to get the buttons of jeans sometimes. I once was almost late for an interview because I couldn't button the button on my sleeve. I'm so inept sometimes...

    Bumped into S_allen_P at a shop yesterday. It's always nice to discuss finds/flip talk/strategy in person.

    Ever dealt with a button fly in a bar, late at night and three sheets to the wind? Not fun.

    I have some of their linen stuff... relaxed shirts, comfy beach shorts. Mostly good stuff. I believe they are carried (or were carried) by Bloomingdales. I'm sure not worth retail but can be a good pickup for the price.

    Button Fly jeans are easy, even when drunk. it requires the same skill that enables you to undo an attractive lady's bra with one hand, in the dark. (it's a jedi skill)
    it's better than the chance of any zipper related problems.......nah mean?
    Besides, you would only need to undo all the buttons if you intend to sit down to pee. - seriously,undo the top 2 and whip it out.[​IMG]

    At least my fly isn't open when I go drinking though.

    I once had a girl over and she was trying to take off my shirt. She was hella confused because she didn't realize that they were all snap buttons.

    It was pretty hilarious.

    Nickels, you're going to be losing a lot of money if you plan on keeping your end of the deal!
