Maybe there was a point in my youth where I missed some critical learning opportunity regarding men’s pants, but I have been completely baffled for years by that button just inside the waste band.
It’s especially prevalent in men’s dress pants that use a clip instead of a button as the primary clasp. You can clip your pants, but then there’s also a supplementary button and button hole tab that reside just to the inside left of the clasp that can be used to doubly secure the pants. What purpose does this button hold? Sure, I can keep it buttoned all the time… but does that mean the clip is insufficient as a clasping device? Or maybe I’m only suppose to button it whenever I put the pants through the wash?
Honestly I have no idea.
What I do know, is that that button is really annoying. Especially if you’re on a long car ride and you’ve really gotta use the restroom. You get home, you charge into the bathroom, and then there’s this auxiliary fastener there to slow you down. Am I using this pants feature incorrectly? Anyone know why it’s there? It seems dumb to me.
