Mens Trouser Waist Heights

Nowadays and for the past thirty years or more it is de rigeur for mens trousers to be worn on the hip but waistbands used to be much higher.

A higher waistband is flattering to the fuller-figured gent. Unless you looked very carefully I think it would be almost impossible to discern that either Cyril Smith or Patrick Moore were more than about twelve stone.

Fashion is always said to be cyclical but when Simon Cowell wore high-waisted trousers ten years ago he became a national laughing stock so when, if ever, do you think that mens trouser waistbands will rise again?

A hundred years.

I predict the waistband will be very high, with no trousers underneath. Like a boobtube.

Some of us have lived through this horror already, as long as we breath they shall not return
