Okay what the hell is wrong with the forum? I've edited my last post and it doesn't update what's in the thread, but if I try to edit it again I see in the preview exactly what I submitted that never showed up the last time.....

The split V makes the pants much more comfortable in my opinion when twisting your body or bending over. Its ads room for some extra movement, while allowing the pants to not be loose in the waist.
1. There was no "name-calling" in my post -- I was describing the content of what was written, not its author -- so say what you mean to say and say it clearly.
2. Your point about the "split V mak[ing] the pants much more comfortable ... when twisting your body or bending over" simply doesn't make any sense. It's plainly wrong. It is the measurement of the waist, the shape of the legs and seat of the pants, and not some arbitrary ornamentation at the top of the waistband that determine fit. The V admittedly makes it easier to alter pants in order to achieve that fit, but if they fit from the get-go there is no reason to have that feature, and as I wrote in my first post I have seen pants without this feature altered flawlessly, so as far as I can see there is no need for it.
I do admit that my distaste for its appearance is entirely subjective, but I prefer a flat rear waistband that matches the belt I will likely wear around it.
