For the record my mind is full of crcohet, yarn, fabric, crochet hooks, crochet patterns, who to aggrivate on the forum that day, crochet, yarn, fabric, crochet hooks, crochet patterns, who to aggrivate on the forum that day, crochet, yarn, fabric, crochet hooks, crochet patterns, who to aggrivate.....etc.etc.


Don't be so eager to use that great big broad general brush to paint a stereotype with, many of us will prove you wrong in more ways than one.
To a man, there are only four things that are not trivial.

WHAT???


I've never heard of such a thing.


I start with the second button from the top. You would never button your top button unless you're wearing a tie, so even if I plan to put a tie on I want to have the buttons correct until I button the top one and add the tie.

Where should you start if you are a woman but you're wearing a mens button up shirt?

I only button the very top button so I can show off my abdominal tattoos.

I think for spite, I will hereby button from the top and bottom, alternating as I go along.
32 year old male and I wear a watch. I'd say about 3/4 of my friends still wear a watch and own multiple. It's part accessory and part useful. I don't always want to pull my phone out just to check the time quick. Nor do I always want to take my phone out in the middle of the meeting to check the time. And, unfortunately, because of phones and computers etc being around, I end up in a lot of conference rooms where a wall clock is not hung up.

I agree it's not as important, but it's certainly far from rare these days.

I've thought of doing that, but to show off my 2 Liter (used to be a 6 pack).

I am 37 years old and have always done it from the top down because that's how my mother taught me. She was a single mother and I've never had a male role model so this floors me and kind of makes me wonder what other things I do that are supposed to be how women do it?

Which wrist should my watch be on?
Not how I button my shirt. Seems more difficult to button up than down. Start at the neck and there's less room for the fabric to slop around which makes it easier. I suppose since I've never found it particularly difficult to accomplish from the top, however, I never investigated whether it was easier the other way.

Watches are made to be worn on the left hand. Put a watch on your right and try and adjust the time. Given you don't really adjust a watch very often at all. Many lefties prefer to wear watches on the right hand for the same reason watches are made to be worn on the left hand, it's their non-dominant hand.

Quite frankly, I'd consider that outfit a challenge. But that's just me.

I've done it both ways and never saw much difference. Either way it's not impossible to miss a button occasionally.
