I don't quite understand the problem without pictures, but I can say that 16"/10.5" has proven to be a good number for me (big seat) for a mid to high rise odd trouser. A bit higher for suit pants, 16.5"/11", and 15"/11" for denim. Took a bit of trial and error to find the numbers that worked for me. 15"/12.5" sounds like it will look a little odd. I have never seen such a small back rise to large front rise ratio... Rare to find front rises that are above 11.5",...
Speaking of the OH blog, funnily enough I am pretty sure this disembowled suit is mine... [[SPOILER]] http://oscarhunt.tumblr.com/post/92601164662/foundations-of-an-oscar-hunt-suit
^^ I think might be an overcoat, though? Hard to tell The overcoat-draped-over-your-shoulders look is waaaay overdone. Trawl through a few pages of the OH blog, especially the Pitti stuff, for a trillion examples...

Another way is to set up some price alerts on camel for Amazon AE belts in your size and colour, or eBay,and they'll come along eventually. I just grabbed a black wide basic and Brown Manistee for 110 dollars with the current 20 percent off coupon.
After this talk of covert coats....I ordered a CT one http://www.ctshirts.co.uk/men's-outerwear/Fawn-classic-fit-covert-coat?q=gbpdefault%7C%7Coc069faw%7C%7C%7C%7C%7C%7C%7C%7C%7C%7C%7C%7C%7CFor $180 after starthere cashback, can't really go wrong (they do have free returns from Aus I discovered, in any event).Might add a velvet collar down the track (I wanted slant pockets, and their velvet collar version is not only $90 more expensive, but has straight pockets).It has...
Anyone know if Charles Tyrwhitt have free-of-charge returns from Aus? Can't seem to find out.
I wear my beige and navy macs all the time - pretty much every day is a chance of rain in Melbourne this time of year. And they both have a removable quilted lining for warmth. Not as warm as a thick woolen coat of course, but conversely much more waterproof and less bulky. I'd like to buy a covert coat, but I can't really justify another piece of outerwear for quite some time.
thetiebar.com sell perfectly acceptable self-ties, some diamond end, with white dots etc. Won't be as good as the brands mentioned, but quite a bit cheaper for something that is rarely worn. http://www.thetiebar.com/categoryPages/BowTies.asp
