    My pants look fine when I'm standing up. They're right on the waist, and they break on the shoes. The pants are fine as long as I stand up. However, when I sit down, they become uncomfortable. They become too tight in that special area. Can a tailor fix this?

    Is this a problem with the rise being too short or long?

    And, would Lands End be the equivalent of a Jantzen for pants?

    If the fit problem is with Lands' End dress slacks, that would mirror my experience with them (not custom, just their regular catalog).  The regular rise seems to have an extremely high waist, and if you buy a short rise, it's a very short rise.  I've also tried their dress chinos and found them to be cut quite slim.  

    [I bought two pair of year-rounders several years ago, and wore them for a while (they were essentially free--credit card reward program), but didn't replace them because of fit issues.]

    If the fit problem is with all of your pants, it sounds like they may be a bit small in the behind, so that when you sit down, the fabric is pulled taut. Depending on the pants, a tailor might be able to let them out and that might help.
