    Just bought a pair of OL jeans and I'm constantly pulling them up

    Yea! That's what was happening to me. Always felt like they need to be pulled up with a 9 3/4" rise..

    Belts are fucking uncomfortable, and if you have low rise jeans, strapping a belt around your goddamn hips is even worse. Hateful things.

    I do wear a belt, but still. I've fully embraced the high rise now. I wear my belt just below my chest.

    Same here. Only jeans who´s rise I can stand are LVC 33/37. If the pants doesn't cover the bellybutton when pulled up, the rise is too low....

    I think I've said this before, but I really should have gotten more pairs of Our Legacy jeans at the sample sale for $25 each. But alas my bags were full and I ended up having to wear extra clothes on the flight because they wouldn't fit!

    My perfect jeans are the LVC 1954, the only issue I have with them is the zip fly.

    Wrong. Objectively wrong. Also, have bloody tight are you strapping these things

    @Synthese - if you belt sizing is anything like your ability to discern your shoe size, then the fault lies with you, not the belt. Consider that you may be 2-4 sizes larger than you think.

    How to wear belts comfortably:

    1. Don't be a fatty.
    2. Size up on your belt.
    3. ???
    4. Profit!!

    I actually can't wear pants without a belt anymore and not have it feel weird, but the quality of my lone belt would make Fok want to beat me with it in a fit of rage.

    I own one belt and I never wear it. I like that clean look when I tuck in a shirt or thin knit

    Look, even the most overpriced belts cost under $1K, Hermes excepted. You can get something good in ANY style for under $300, under $200 most of the time (under $100, and you are possibly cutting it close). You have a wardrobe worth mahy multiples of that. Get a good belt in black or dark brown that fits your style (other, cooler colors and leather can come later), and build from there.
