Zipper advice

I'm just finishing sleeve #2 and am thinking forward to whether I want buttons or a zipper. I'm thinking that buttons may create "gaps" when I button it up. How have folks finished the front bands when they put in a zipper...are they kniting the same way they would for buttons without the button band? I saw some reference to I-cord bind off, was this after the button band had been knitted. After all this work, I want to be sure I finish it so it looks as well as possible.

I knit the button bands plain -- no button holes. You may also want to think about how wide you're making them, since they won't overlap as they would with buttons. Check the posts labeled Central Park Hoodie on my blog for pictures with a zipper.
