Alas - we've lost the art of growing old gracefully - at least those of us who have passed the 30 year mark, are male, and still think Harry Potter makes for a great read. According to the fashion experts at Esquire magazine, we're (cue dramatic music) kid-ultsopens in new window.

Men over 30 should never show their underwear above their waistband, stay in bed past 11am unless they are sick, or go on holiday with the lads.

Nor should they eat or drink things with extreme or max in their titles, wear a watch costing less than £100 or be unable to keep a plant or pet alive for a month, says the latest style guide for thirtysomethings.

Esquire editor Simon Tiffin said: "We were inspired by the sight on planes, trains and buses of too many grown men reading Harry Potter. They are kid-ults. We've lost the art of growing old gracefully."
