Yeah, it should be fine. Depending on fabric and color, the seam might show.

Noticed those too, how's the quality compared to made in US or Italy?

^ quality and cut seem to be more in line with the made in USA.  Sizing was a bit different. I bought 34 waist which fit well.  Usually I buy the 34 in Italian and have it slimmed down to a 33 waist.  The thigh and seat area were cut more generous, like the USA.  I didn't do a direct comparison, but the leg opening seemed a bit slimmer on the suit pants.  I measured it at 8 inches.  I am not sure what the Italian or USA cut openings are, but I feel like it is slightly wider.  The only detail difference I noticed was that it did not have the loop to secure the belt buckle.

Thank you.

Could anyone compare the fit of Yount pants to BB Milano?
post #3696 of 4658
Could anyone explain to me how to use the loop to secure the belt buckle. I dont get it and have not intentionally used it, how does it work?

Put the prong through the loop. I never use this functionality though.

Has anyone tried the Egyptian cotton trousers? How heavy is the cloth? And how "tan" is it? I noticed that lots of pants are on sale at HY.

Nice feature that you should try. Keeps the belt from any shifting.

Thanks, I suspected this to be the case and tried it once, but it didnt work at all. It sat way too low.

I am wearing some HY pants today, so figured I would snap an example of the loop.  Not sure how it is too low, it should hold your belt in the perfect spot.

Wow thats awesome.  My pants often slip down on my belt.

The belt isn't needed if you wear well fitting pants. But its a neat feature for sure.

I assume you meant the prong loop isn't needed if the pants fit well?  Actually, I find the prong loop most helpful on corduroy pants.  Even when wearing well fitted corduroy pants, my belt shifts to the side due to the fabric.  Very helpful to have the prong loops to hold the belt in place.

No, he's saying that if the pants fit, you don't need a belt and can even go so far as to remove the belt loops.
