Sort out right measurement for trousers? (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

girth

Here is my best explanation:

'measurement for trousers?' is the definition.

'sort out right' is the subsidiary indication.

'sort out' is an anagram indicator.

'right' anagrammed gives 'girth'.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for girth that I've seen before include "Measurement around the waist", "Circumpherence", "Distance round a body", "waist measurement", "Target of diet", "Some tack", "Circumference", "A band passing under horse's belly", "Perimeter" and "Right (anag.)".)
