Husbands Bosworth (n.)

Following a discussion on twitter I thought I should stake my claim here to the definition of this as per Liff.

It's not in either editions of Liff, so:

Husbands Bosworth (n.) a chair or other seating apparatus provided in a boutique, for the use of men to read their Telegraph (or other lesser newspapers); thus permitting the woman to take the necessary amount of time to choose her new apparel.
NB also used to describe the tech basement in Selfridges and pubs who incorrectly call it a man crèche.
