So gentlemen, do you dress to the left or the right?

I suppose when you are charged with producing a publication about one street making essentially one product it can get a little difficult to find subject matter but I think we are scraping the barrel a bit here.

More men dress to the left than the right, say the top Row tailors. This esoteric term for on which side of their trousers customers prefer to accommodate their member is but one of the personal preferences covered in this survey around the Row. Women have little influence, it seems, in their partners' tailoring matters; obesity does not appear to be a growing problem for customers - yet; and the conservative dark business suit remains top choice.

Dress to the Left or Right? The consensus is that the left is the more usual position for a man's equipment. This is taken into consideration in the make of the trousers, giving a little more width in the top of the left trouser leg. But there is some dispute about how this preference comes about: Some say those who are right handed hang to the left, if left handed then probably to the right; others that the member will point towards the side that the heart is on - normally the left; that the left is practical because the fly can then provide 'discreet' camouflage; and there is another school that favours straight up.

Sizes getting Bigger? Asked if men are getting bigger, in reference to their overall size, not any one aspect, the answer was a surprising no - by a slim majority. But in relation to dress, as above, one wag stated that "it depends upon how pleased he is to see you". Another noted that hefty-sized customers would find it difficult to buy clothes to fit them off-the-peg, so need a tailor to get a good fit; and another points out that waists and seats are increasing.

And "to the left" wins by a length!

The poll was a joke, I'm amazed anyone voted!
