    Which do you prefer as a fastener?
    Does it depend on the item or garment?

    For example, I never could comfortably wear 'slip-on' shoes as I find them painful due to a high instep, so I invariably buy laced shoes. For trousers, I like buttoned flies although zipped ones are quicker if you're in a hurry ..

    What do you generally prefer, allowing for the odd exception?
