    Pants Poll: Zipper or Buttons?

    So today I am wearing these new jeans I got, and when I went to pee I was reminded of what a pain in the ass these button flies are. They take longer to open (which can be painful when you really have to go), and are also bothersome to close again. I always have to look twice and make sure I didn't leave any of the buttons open.

    So tell me, dear MMO-Champion!

    Is there any advantage to having a button fly instead of a quick, easy, and reliable zipper fly?

    What do YOU prefer? The classic and awesome Zipper fly:


    Or the awkward button fly:

    Buttons. Every man has, at some point, got their foreskin caught in the zip (unless you're circumcised). Trust me, it hurts like FUCK. Don't have that problem with buttons!

    But also, they're trousers. Pants are what you wear under trousers.

    Lol, well while I do love There's Something About Mary, I could never really relate with that scene. Never had that happen to me, and I can't see how it could happen. Maybe if you were going commando and were extremely incautious. I guess the lesson is to use underwear?

    I might be a bit weird, but I prefer the zipper with jeans. Simply because their buttons are never any good. On dress trousers and such (as well as most chinos), the buttons are usually far superior.

    It's the opposite in Americaland. For some reason. No idea why.

    Buttons are simply a pain in the ass. And if you're careful getting caught isn't an issue.

    I thought only in the lands of fiction and america were people dumb enough to do that.

    Zippers all the way, not even a contest.

    I like buttons more, they look cooler to me but it's rare to find a brand that uses them often. However, for most women's cuts they make the buttons too tight, which makes for difficult access.
    Dear forum users,
    I'm sorry the internet hurt your feelings.
    Love,

    As a woman, I like buttons better. I think it looks better.

    It may have something to do with me once seeing an abnormally long fly on a guy way back in high school. It made the pants crease into waves 3-4 times when he sat down and it was just not fashionable at all, haha.

    I prefer buttons but the other day I bought a new pair of denim with a zipper. First time in years, felt weird.

    These two made me laugh

    I'm also wondering. When unbuttoning button-fly jeans, do you guys open your belt and top-most button as well? I don't, it just seems like even more work. I just unbutton 3 or so buttons from the middle and squeeze my willy through there.

    I unbutton everything since my boxers don't have buttons and to me it's a mystery how other guys do it without unbuttoning every button. I'd probably piss against my own boxers otherwise.

    Zipper, for when when you really need to go! Also, don't go commando if you don't want any accidents to happen...

    I prefer the zip with a button at the top. Just looks better imo, and it feels like there isnt the risk of the flies coming undone!
