Topic: Elasicated trousers

Come on own, up who has a pair.

I have 2 pairs of slacks as they were known, but only for work. Not to far from going to leisure wear Saga look, for my normal clothes though.

I recommend Cotton Traders classic chinos as the best exponents in the game.

I've always seen elasticated waistbands as an admission of defeat.

Not guilty.

She’s the main man in the office in the city and she treats me like I’m just another lackey, but I can put a tennis racket up against my face and pretend that I am Kendo Nagasaki...

Re: Elasicated trousers

As a man of a certain age who can go from 32" to 34" at the mere glance of cheese, my chinos have an expandable waist.

Bought some (by accident) when I was back in Leeds. Bought the jeans without trying on, got home, they were all stretchy, quite good actually and they actually look like jeans.

As for elasticated trousers..

Re: Elasicated trousers

I read somewhere 38” waist is classed as obese, 36” with Lycra keeps me under the radar.
I am working on it atm . My hardest task currently weekdays , is fastening my work pants, fair play them Koreans can sow a button on .

This time last year I was up to a 40" waste jeans.  Just bought a 36" pair and need a belt with them.

Meal replacement shakes to get going and then just putting less food into my fat fucking face.  34 pounds down out of a target of 74 without too much pain.

Re: Elasicated trousers

Sounds easy doesn't it? I'm alright if I get to bed before 9. After that it's head in the 'fridge looking for something to eat.

I don't get that night-time munchies thing. Used to as a kid, triple decker marmalade sarnies or chunks of cheese and meat.

Re: Elasicated trousers

My Achilles heel is my sweet tooth.
Can't resist delving into the biscuit or cake tin when I have a brew.particularly late evening.
Luckily still a 34 waist but thats mainly down to the running I reckon.

Have pretty much cut out sugar/sweets. Had two chocolate bars since New Year. Would do two a day before that....
34 waist still though

Re: Elasicated trousers

I used to be consistently a 34inch waist, but now 32. Nothing has changed other than the sizing of clothes, as I am still the same size. Apparently, a new size 12 dress for a woman is actually an old size 16, its all a con. really.
