Buttons are the bane of the Fat Guy’s existence.
Buttons leave gaps when the Fat Guy’s fat rolls jiggle around and peek through them.
Buttons catch on drawer pulls, come undone at the belly, and are generally uncooperative.
Buttons are generally on costlier clothing, which means the Fat Guy is spending too much money on something he looks terrible in anyway.
Ironically, there are never enough buttons. A button-up shirt that has fewer than seven — and ideally eight — buttons, is going to stop buttoning above the belly.
So in general, the Fat Guy prefers big bulky billowy pull-over type clothing.
