A Pelham, New York, dad proclaimed victory after perfectly aligning the top button of his light denim L.L. Bean dungarees with his belly button.
“I have to give credit to the people at Beans [L.L. Bean], for making a terrific pair of slacks,” said 43-year-old Jason Messner. “They’ve got just the right amount of elastic in the waistband, which allows for great stretch but isn’t terribly unsightly. They’re just wonderful.”
According to Messner, his top button stayed aligned with his belly button for the better part of the day, save for his usual 1:30 gas bubble that typically follows his lunch, which pushed the top button down approximately one inch. “It did slip a bit there for a few minutes after a particularly hearty meal at CPK [California Pizza Kitchen], but it worked itself out, if you know what I mean.”
A wide variety of menswear can be found on the L.L Bean website. But be warned, some style of dungarees, like the ones featured here, run upwards of $28.
