    button flys > zippers because you can't get your balls stuck in a buttonhole.

    my only gripe about the buttons: women find them too troubling.

    Hahahaha, it's hilarious. It's uncommon so they double take and can't figure it out. Kind of like when you see a front-clasp bra for the first time.

    How troubling can it really be? Everyone's seen buttons. I once had a girl exclaim "buttons! fancy!". I see the relation to tricky bras though.

    I have heard, from a practical standpoint, for cold weather wear zippers tend to seize up and buttons obviously don't. This goes for jackets and pants. This is in part why a lot of naval garb has buttons and snap releases.

    I sometimes miss a button in the middle on my APCs or Diors. It only happens with those two brands. Don't know why.

    Yup. I had to take her hand and say, "put your hand here on this corner. Now, pull!" [​IMG] It might take her a couple of times to practice but it will be worth the effort... [​IMG] Don't be afraid to pimp slap her to fire her up a bit... She'll be ravaging your jeans (and your penOr) in no time!

    I think it's so the woman/man you're with has one last chance to reconsider their next move...

    Button-fly's give you 4 or 5 chances to reconsider.
