The reason the trousers never fit well is because they are a longer rise than where you are wearing them. You need a lot less rise in the front in particular to wear them where you have them.

Try this: Hike them up a couple inches and cinch up your belt. I bet the upper thigh, seat, and front look better. Now you're not going to wear them that high, but that is how they are cut.

Do yourself a favor and take the waist and seat back in. Anyone on here that thinks otherwise, look at these tell-tale signs of a loose waist/seat:




Next time you are shopping for trousers, pay particular attention to the fabric directly below your crotch. If there is additional fabric, the rise is too high for you.

 

Hi Paul, thanks for replying with your insight. Trouser shopping is such a pain since my body is apparently not very OTR friendly. If I pull them up as much as I can, they will be above the belly button, which does indeed look very dorky. So that's why I'm thinking going MTM next time.

Do you think I should go with body measurements, or measure this pair and modify as follows:

 

Front rise: -2 inches

Back rise: -2 inches

Seat: -1 inch

Waist: -1 inch

 

something like that?

The point of pulling them up was to show that you could, which means the rise is too long for you.

You don't necessarily need MTM, you might try some different brands/cuts first.

With regard to ordering MTM trousers, broad estimates like this are dangerous territory and it's impossible to know the amount from pictures, no matter the quality. I can tell you for sure that the waist, seat, and front rise are too big, but how much is not possible. It's unclear if the back rise is too big. You need to have a clothier measure you, not the internet or yourself.
