NYT Crossword Puzzle 8-16-21 Complete (contains spoilers)

I pulled out 55D Jacket fastener that’s not a button: SNAP because those can be amazing. I wish I had those on my kittel–the white robe used in some Jewish holidays. Also worn by grooms on their wedding days, as I experienced just yesterday. NBD. The kittel that my wife, Calah, had gotten for me has the buttons on the wrong side. It was the first time that I’d attempted to fasten wrong-side buttons. It was mess. Much respect, women out there.
