A survey by the UK department store Debenhams, suggests that you can tell a man’s age by the level of his waistband.

(Seemingly the height of the waistband bottoms out at the age of 16 with below-the-hip styles and peaks at 57, where it ends up just seven inches below the armpit. Personally I can’t stand the sight of young men with their jeans hugging their hips and their boxers on full show, but equally I can’t bear the sight of overweight males who can’t decide whether to wear their trousers above or below their beer belly. It’s called a waistband for a reason!)
