    Alright.

    Tell me if I'm crazy, but I find when weighing out the pros and cons of button-fly versus zipper-fly pants, button-fly pants clearly win.

    Hear me out.

    I realize that with button-fly pants, it's quite a problem to use a urinal, as you basically have to undo your pants to take a piss; however, the possibility of a zipper-pinch is reduced almost to zero (albeit, I'm sure retarded/left-handed-buttoner demographic could manage it), and there almost no chance of an embarassing open fly when buttoned correctly.

    Does anyone else have an opinion on this?

    I agree with you. I usually wear 501s for just that reason.

    Not necessarily true. I usually unbutton only the lowest three buttons. This technique is also useful if you want to have that Special Friend get in some stealthy groping in otherwise inappropriate situations.

    Button fly jeans are getting harder to find.

    The Gap and Levi make lots of styles with button fly fronts. I personally don't like the hassle of unbuttoning and the jeans I have tried with button-flys are a bit too snug for me. I have NOT purchased jeans because of a button fly.

    You're crazy, but I agree with you. Button flies rule.

    BUTTONS.... I personally have not looked for other jeans with button flys....501's rule. Also like my BDU trousers because of button fly...but those are gone now...zippers for military pants after I do not know how many centuries of button flys...... Some realy fancy schmacy dress trousers have button fly, but out of my price range.....

    Loving the button fly, kind of sexy and speaking from a "commando" point of view, they are a heck of lot safer.

    Definately buttons for me. I find that button fly jeans seem to have more room in the crotch area, which is probably because there is more slack with buttons. They are quick to unbutton, but it is true that buttonening up is a bit slow. However, i have developed good dexterity with buttons.

    There are quite a few varieties of button fly jeans other than 501's, bu tof coiurse zippers are more common. In fact, Levi's has a low rise line with only one button, and some with two buttons. Definately some of my favorites. Here are a few examples:

    Buttons.
    I'm so used to wearing them, I don't even think about the mechanics of getting in and out of them. And, they have always been more flattering than the zippered jeans.
    This year, Levis announced that they would start making the classic 501s baggier! Horrors. Luckily, there is a store here in SF that sells used jeans for people like me who prefer the old style.

    Buttons. I have a pair of distressed buffalo-hide leather jeans that I love: it took a long time to find the button fly version. When I wear 501's to the bar, I leave the top and bottom buttons undone: it gives just a bit more room ... and it's naughty/flirty! :wink:

    Lex, you are a wimp.:rolleyes: Button fly jeans are supposed to be a hassle and they have to be "too snug." They show off your huge phallus to its best advantage.

    You have so much to learn, young bi-guy.

    From another point of view, buttons. In the past I have more than once destroyed a zip in the worst possible way; but never a set of fly buttons.

    Despite the well-worn limerick about the young lady from Ealing and the fly buttons hitting the ceiling.

    I too usually leave the bottom and top button unbuttoned.....more room, but also easier to get the other undone.... I do not get out much so not much flirting going on here.

    These are all excellent points, thanks!

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned the added hotness factor that happens when someone "rips" open a button fly. I find it a hell of a lot sexier than the slow unzipping of a zipper.
