Q From Martin Toseland, London: My grandmother, from Lincolnshire, regularly compared something to Dick's hatband, a puzzling allusion that. "Tighter than dick's hatband" should be "tighter than a dick's hatband" and could be written as "tighter than a detective's hatband". A phrase referring to the band.
