BRIAN WILLIAMS, anchor: If you are a man among us who brags that you're the same pant size you were in high school, don't kid yourself. At least that's what a new article in the new Esquire says. It says your pants are really lying to you, really the manufacturers. Women have dealt with this issue for years. They call it vanity sizing in the clothing trade. And the magazine discovered a pair of say men's Dockers purchased by those guys who bragged they still have a 36-inch waist, it's much closer to 40. Old Navy 's 36 on the label is actually 41 in real life. A lot of guys out there are living much larger than they think.
