Your car of choice? (cost and practicality ignored)

1. Don't have to try too hard, and yes. It looks Yakuza-ish though. Not very distinguished
2. None actually...St. Louis has pretty varied cuisine, was pretty surprised.
3. The Audi that Will Smith drove in iRobot

Is this even a thing? Who buttons shirts from the bottom? I can understand toilet paper arguments. Hell, I can even see the merits of milk-first cereal eating, but shirts are top-down, pal.

1. Toasted ravioli. I've had everything else before

2. Top down...people actually do it bottom up??

3. I've never had to explain where WUSTL is. University as a whole is very well-known among educated people in the Northeast. There was one time where someone thought I meant UW, but she was from NorCal and her confusion was brief

I think that was an undergrad debacle

I'm with doge on this one. How am I supposed to leave a suitable amount of visible man-chest if I button top-down?

I button things the way I button my baseball jersey and since I always leave 2 jersey buttons undone up top I start at the bottom. To be fair, I thought everyone buttoned bottom-up

Do you also put the toilet paper in the holder the wrong way?

Bottom up?! I guess it takes all kinds, but I don't know if I can handle that...

FIERO SOAPBOX VOL. 1:

Buttoning a Shirt - with diagram

It seems as if there has been some confusion, and perhaps even some scoffing (looking at you, RB 8) ) about the methods of buttoning a shirt. The two methods in question are: "top down" and "bottom up". Now I'm sure there are plenty of smart asses ITT and the world in general who will say "But Fiero, it's called a button DOWN! SO YOU SHOULD BUTTON IT DOWNWARD, HURR DURR!" Well I'm not here to try to hammer this square peg of truth and knowledge into round-holed brains. If you aren't willing to open your eyes, think critically, and make a change in your thinking when mad knowledge is dropped on you- I can't help. Ignorance is bliss I guess.

But for those of you enjoy a good thought exercise and like to do things practically, I give you this: buttoning your shirt from the bottom up is the way to go - because it is more logically consistent and user friendly.

We all know there are three classic ways to wear a button down shirt: formal (all buttons buttoned up), semi-formal (all but the very top button closed), and casual (all but the top two buttons buttoned). I've labeled these as such in the handy diagram below. Guess what the common denominator in all these classic styles are ladies and gentlemen: Yep, the bottom button(s) are always buttoned. So it's quite simple really. By nature of these bottom buttons being consistently treated the same, they provide a comfort and stability that I and other enlightened shirt wearers who use the bottom as their starting point have come to know and love.

You'll never get buttons crossed or confused even for the slightest of moments if you just 1) pull your shirt out gently from the very bottom, 2) locate and connect the bottom button and it's assigned hole, and 3) proceed up the shirt with your buttoning efforts at your leisure.

Life is too short, and getting dressed is often at too brain dead of an hour, to subject yourself to the multi part equation that is buttoning a shirt from the top down. So many variables and traps. My way has none of those, and all other factors become equal in practice. But if you enjoy chaos, be my guest. I'll be buttoning my shirt with ease and never crossing up buttons or even coming close.

That's all folks. Cheers and see you next time on FIERO SOAPBOX

I always knew there was something wrong with you. Now I know what it is.

Doge is a gnome and njdevils is both Canadian and a Devils fan. What is your excuse?
