Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

is it wrong that I'm happy velcro has zero votes so far?

Zippers and buttons and snaps are all well and good, but I'd like to take a moment to laud the greatest of apparel attaching tools: the mighty horned toggle. Oh fastener of felts! Oh coupler of cottons! Oh trusser of tangibly terrific tops! Aii, how I do love thy leathered locking links. How I cherish thy stubby scimitars of well-wedging warmth. My wintrous coats and sweatered torso are made better being by thy presence, and I am grateful to the solid comfort and subtle grace of thine appearances on my connectable clothings. Hail to the toggle, the most fastidiously fat-fingers-forgiving of fastenings! Praise be unto its duffled domains! Long may the fair toggle continue its affixing actuality upon my person and many others! Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah!

And then there is the humble frog - made famous on oriental clothing. Actually my real favorite is the slip-on or slip-over, which needs no fastener except perhaps a little judicious elastic.

Jacket? Zipper.
Shirt? Button.
Shoes? Laces.
Cargo? Rope.
Envelope? Self adhesive.
Pant fly? Zipper.
Underwear fly? Button (for whatever reason I find these uber sexy).
