    On certain pairs of jeans, the waistband will seem to "fall" beneath the belt between the rear belt loop and side belt loop, on both sides. This only affects jeans with 5 belt loops, but doesn't affect all jeans with 5 belt loops.

    I'm trying to figure out what the issue is so I can avoid it in the future. I think the back rise might be too high for how jeans sit on me. Has anyone else experienced this?

    As I recall, I had the issue with 501s, but not 514s, and I currently have it with my Uniqlo regular-straight fits.

    This happens to a couple pairs I own as well. My view is that it's because i'm tightening the belt to a point that it's a couple inches smaller than the actual waist of the jeans - and that extra couple inches needs to go somewhere.
