Jacket

Post by Stevenloan » Thu Feb 09, 2017 4:37 am

Hi you guys! Is it correct to say it like this in the following link?

"When I wear a jacket, I never use the zip fastener because it looks trendier."

Thanks very much!

I don't know anyone who would call it a "zip fastener" in normal conversation.
Is it correct? Yes. Is it natural? Nope.
"...I never use the zipper..."
"...I never zip it up..."

In the UK we would call it a zip.

And I would have said, "I think it looks more trendy if I leave my jacket open".

Is "trendy" trendy these days? I think "cool" still works and I believe "sick" has some currency.
I would suspect the zip would not be mentioned.

"doing it up isn't cool"
or "leave it undone to be fashionable", "it is fashionable/cool to leave it undone"

I'm puzzled therefore I think.
