It's their softest fused collar, the same one that we use on our 1-piece polo collar. That being said, if I had to do it over again I might pick one step up, something closer to medium. Hope that helps.
Hey D, that loop is actually just a single loop to hold the extended waistband, so yeah I can't really wear a belt with these. They fit well at the waist though, so I can ditch the suspenders if need be. The waistband is actually only a little bit taller than what I've found in most rtw (these are Ambrosi's house style).
