    This discussion reminds me. A year or so ago I bought Rota pants from NMWA. Lovely, except... Button fly, plus extended waist band that goes through first belt loop, then belt loops and this little loop for holding belt (so sort of doesn't go without belt, right?).... This thing is painful when I need to piss.

    Yes, but then I can't put it back without unbuttoning waist.

    Maybe we need a tutorial thread on how to button one's pents? Even this thread may be too advanced for the topic

    Personally, I find undoing my Rotas to be very entertaining and dramatic. It's usually a good conversation starter, albeit at a time when conversation is not necessarily on the priority list.

    Unbuttoning the fly and then trying to snake your willy through layers of underpants, shirt, and pants and then the narrow aperture of the fly and then cramming it back in there without getting urine all over yourself requires Houdini-like talent. The fly-only maneuever is for troglodytes. Just unbutton your pants like a normal person. Frankly, I don't even think the fly was invented for urinary purposes.

    Maybe... I feel like a moron :)
    Pants are so good that it's worth it.
    Happy new year everyone!

    And that's why I always unbotton them all the way, and it takes time.

    1. Scotch. Always scotch. Preferably from the islay region!

    2. Don't piss at urinals. Your pants will thank you for the lack of piss sprinkling

    Truer words have not been spoken. Ruined a very nice pair of ISAIA MTM pants trying to houdini my willy back in without unbuttoning. After that, always unbutton, always.

    Your urine ruined pants? Maybe time to change your diet.

    Thats a consideration. But the dry cleaners could not get the stain that developed on the white lining by the crotch, and i could not get over it and threw them away.i dont quite recollect the exact sequence of events of how it happened bc there was some Balvenie portwood involved that night also.

    Formosa pants have tons of buttons but I do not mind them and do not hinder me when I have to go pee pee. I hate zippers.
    one time I farted too hard and the rest is history..

    Next BnT fitting. Only thing I would like is a slightly wider leg opening on the suit pants. The angle of the photo makes the torso to leg proportions look a little weird, in reality the pants draped beautifully

    Pity you'll miss summer by the time it's finished but the green linen is fantastic.
