And Tom Jones, the aging “heartbreaker” who croons to little old ladies in Vegas, insures his chest hair.That’s right, Lloyd’s of London gave him a policy worth almost $7 million to make sure his follicles stay put.

“Admittedly, this is one of the most obscure requests I’ve had — but I still came up with a wording that addressed the need,” underwriter John Thomas is quoted as saying.

In the past, Lloyd’s has insured other celebrities’ body parts, including Keith Richards’ fingers and Jennifer Lopez’s booty.

But if you don’t have the cash to insure that love rug on your man-cleavage, we’ve come across some tips for keeping yours in shape, after the jump.

According to Isabella Snow, there’s definitely some value in keeping your pelt in primo condition. She suggests that you trim the hair, but not shave or wax your chest.

“If you really want to highlight your chest, the best way is to bring the hair in line,” she writes. “All you need to do is trim it. Keep in mind, if you trim it too much, it will not look natural. The idea is to maintain it without making it look like you put too much effort into it.”
