Your pants are lying to you  SEP 08 2010

Your pants say that you have a 34-inch waist but the actual measurement might be a few inches off.

However, the temple for waisted male self-esteem is Old Navy, where I easily slid into a size 34 pair of the brand's Dress Pant. Where no other 34s had been hospitable, Old Navy's fit snugly. The final measurement? Five inches larger than the label. You can eat all the slow-churn ice cream and brats you want, and still consider yourself slender in these.

The vanity sizing situation with women's clothes is even more variable. (via @linklog)
