    How do I know if something will fit around my love handles??

    I mean that it is very important for each young, but also older man, to know his personal dates (his own measures himself). But a great difficulty is, that the most countries on our planet are using very different measure-systems – because also the most people are different
    in the same way. Therefore I want to use such measure-tables for an exact and detailed finding of the right (complete) men-wear – this means underwear and the complete streetwear. The right measures are of course the really basics for a correct styled man in public.
