Dear Clothing Manufacturers,
Until today, I hadn’t realized how awful some buttons are. Have you ever stopped to think about that stupid little hidden button most dress pants come with? You know the one I’m talking about: it’s the little clear one on the inside of the waistband that’s always in the weirdest spot. It’s supposed to hold the extra material down after you fasten the buttons/clasps right on top of the zipper, right?
You know what I think? I think you put that evil button there just to mess with people like us. I can barely get the important buttons on my pants/shirts/pea coat fastened sometimes. Why would you ever think that I’d want to spend time on a button that, in theory, only I know about or see?
I try not to use the damn thing. My pants have held up just fine on those days. But then my OCD kicks in and I’m obsessing over the fact that I’m not utilizing an item the way it was intended to be used, so I try to awkwardly fasten the material over it until five minutes have gone by and I am still no closer to victory than I was before.
If you’re making a quality pair of pants, then your zipper should hold up just fine. Save yourselves the trouble of sewing on an extra piece I don’t really need. In turn, you will save my sanity.
