  • Fashion designer Victoria Beckham offers words of wisdom to men who wear jeans: let your nuts hang. The former Posh Spice, who has her own men’s jeans line, told The Daily Record: “I think guys should wear jeans big and baggy, with a big pair of boots or flip-flops – exactly how you see David when he’s out in jeans and T-shirt. Do not pull them up tight and have your bulge showing. Let it hang…If you are a man who likes skinny jeans, this isn’t the line for you. I didn’t want anything too tight at the crotch. That repulses me. It might be fashionable, but you are not going to get that from dVb.” She must have found husband David Beckham’s recent Armani underwear ads positively gag-inducing – and not in a good way like the rest of us.

I realized as I watched him fight for breath, that his life was as important to him as mine is to me.”
