Presumably this only works for seeing whether they fit round the waist, not the length and only if you are "average" build - ie you don't have an enormous beer gut (unless you have a fat head to match!)

As most men have the waist of their trousers sitting almost on their hips (i.e. below any beer gut) this works for all sized / shape men. You can tell if trousers will fit lengthwise by holding them to your leg!

 i'm bored at work, as we are closed....... so i decided to check this one out,

 i took a tape measure and measured the distance round my head at forehead level - result is 25 inches, - so add abit for the 'overlap' say 5 inches..... so are you telling me my waist is 30 inches ?

 

I wish ! 30 plus the VAT at 17.5 %  maybe !!!!!!!!!

No! If you kept the trousers done up when putting it round your head then your calculation should be:

Circumference around head x 2 (as material is doubled up) = waist

action mans thumbs are anatomically incorrect, check the positions of the thumb nail on both hands ( only true action men have this feature to make counterfeits easy to spot !)
