It would look ridiculous to wear no belt if the pants had belt loops. Does anyone go to the extreme to remove belt loops? I agree not getting belt loops on custom or MTM pants, but seems silly to remove them from RTW.

I remove them from all my RTW suits and some of my odd trousers.

I am used to wearing belts, and like that added dimension to clothing though admittedly, it isn't much.

 

I would feel "naked" if only wearing pants with belt loops and a shirt without belt (plus no Jacket). But if you were to do this, definitely, no belt loops. Otherwise, looks like you forgot to put something on!

The belt keeper loop is one of my favorite HY details and I really wish that all of my pants had one.

I should actually probably clarify this comment was made when I FIRST woke up.

 

And I meant the belt buckle loop isn't needed.

 

Sorry guys. shog[1].gif

You are much more confident than me about maintaining current weight.  If I go no belt loops on MTM, I need side adjusters because I easily fluctuate by 5-8 pounds throughout the year.

This does make sense too. A lot of mine fit. Adjusters are better, with braces being the way pants were meant to be worn.

 

That said, I like the decorative idea of a belt.

Do folks here wear suspenders with odd trousers and sport coat? I was under the impression that they were really best for suits.

I don't think people do too often.. I don't see it. Though, that's a good question. Maybe best asked in the HOF thread.

Thanks...don't want to derail the HY thread. I don't see suspenders with odd jackets often either and where I see it in blogs, there's something not quite right about it. Still, it's something on which I'm inclined to say, if you like the way it looks, then do it.

 

Back to HY...bump on the question: has anyone tried the egyptian cotton pants? Wondering how light weight it is.

I do have side adjusters on my MTM stuff. Basically any suit pants, and a few of my odd trousers that I only wear with sportcoats, I always wear with braces, so the waist of the pants is actually quite loose, which is fine because the braces hold them where they are supposed to be.

I do, as do a couple of other people I know.

I also wear a belt with odd trousers and sport coat - it depends on the trousers.

Whilst I'm aware that some people think that braces are too formal for the odd trousers and jacket look, I think that it's fine, particularly if the braces are, say, a plain burgundy or plain navy.

Got the same ones today as well!  What a steal. 

 

This isn't the first time I've felt guilty buying a Final Sale item from HY -- someone really ought to buy the thick denim blue cashmere sweater.  If I could justify owning two in different sizes, I would.

Got a reply from Jamison. The Egyptian cotton is a light weight fabric, perhaps comparable to tropical wool. Of course, now sold out in my size...confused.gif
