Thread: trouserswith flys

    I take my jeans to a seamstress in town and she removes the old zipper down to the seam and puts in a longer zipper. You should be able to find someone who sews in town. Usually costs me about $15 for her to buy the longer zipper and sew it in.

    I love carecure. I learn everything here. This issue of having my hose kinked because of my zipper being too short has been driving me nuts.
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    could you also put the zipper in upside down open from the bottom?

    Well said Nonoise, and that is an interesting mental image you have presented

    I wouldn't recommend this, as it would place the zipper pull right under your perineum, and could cause skin breakdown. Velcro is perhaps a better option, especially if you go commando.

    In the latest issue of New Mobility there's an update on a company that has made adaptive clothing, but was out of the market for a year and now is back with more stuff. It's IZ, and I can't find my magazine right now, but there's a website for them.
    The article mentioned longer zippers, among other things. Apparently their pricing is now less and their garments are available in some stores - Macy's was one of them.

    Unless you are wearing your slacks waistband up under your armpits, a magnetic fly should have no impact on a cardiac pacemaker.
