Stein may have written about buttons that were tender but I need to say something else about them. Something controversial that might hurt somebody’s feelings — but here it is:
Buttons look really dumb on clothing unless they are working as a button.
You may quote me on that.
Why do people put them on things? I believe that there are too many buttons without jobs which compels people to want to give them the ‘job’ of just hanging out, usurping their chance of ever securing flaps of clothing together again.
I might as well break more controversial news here as well:
I shudder with horror when I hear the term ‘wearable art’.
Have a nice day!
