I don't know. My first PJ suit was my first outing with side tabs and the almost instant reaction from people was "where's your belt?". I still do find it a little strange wearing a suit but no belt.

My mantra is, 'once you go side adjusters you don't go back'.

 

Saves you money, saves you time, you can wear any shoe colour (that matches your pants/suit). Personally, I'm a fan. :p

"Why do you need a belt? Don't your pants fit?"

 

I get all my pants made with Daks(button) Adjusters. I much prefer it to the side tab. All my pants have it now, and when I get shorts made up for summer, they'll have it too. Denim is the only thing that should have belt loops.

Belt or side adjuster or braces - just personal preference . I have only 2 pairs with side adjusters. Not a big fan - I prefer a nice leather belt. It just breaks the outfit a bit.
On a another note received and altered my new Mabitex sartorial grey trousers. Just amazing - awesome soft fabric and there are pick stitching every where including all along side seam and also on belt loops. Will post details pics tomorrow.

Is this a black and white Borrelli suit?  Also, what did you do with all your Isaia suits and Brioni shirts?

Chinos too. That way you can wear them with a tshirt/people mistake them for moleskins.

Re the great trouser holder upper preferences, so far its belts, side adjusters /tabs, or Daks with buttons, or a combo daks with elastic. I have seen ones a sort of modified daks with elastic and a metal fold over clamp, like ones on watch bands. Never worn those though. I've been thinking of a self belt, of same material as suit/trousers. Anybody here done that?

As my old mate Henry Fonda would say:

 

How can you trust a man who wears both a belt and suspenders? The man can't even trust his own pants.

Any suggestions on where to get OTR mid-rise grey flannel trousers? Or are those better MTM from say Luxire or SuitShop?

Hopefully the price doesn't go up by too much for the next batch, would be nice to give that a try. Otherwise might be cheaper to take the Spirit of Tasmania and do a cellar door run.

If it goes along the front or back, I imagine there would be quite a bit of bunching up of material? In my head, I'm thinking of the half belts on the back of some coats.

no I mean a proper belt, just made out of the same batch of material. With a covered buckle too. Very common on women's stuff. I've pictures around somewhere of it on men's. Looks good and solves the unbroken line problem. And enables belt loops to be used for the more common leather / suede / woven material belts for a chance.

I saw it at Caid and it looked really good. If I recall, the buckle was to the side rather than in the centre and it looked very unobtrusive.

Dan Murphy's stocks it. Actually it's cheaper there than at the factory!

Not an issue as RMW make belts in the same leathers as their boots.

All my suits have side adjusters on the trousers. It's the only way to go.

At the end of the day(or sometimes the start) wearing no pants is always the best option.
