    Uh...couple weeks ago, I purchased a black color black label Ralph Lauren suit. I was so focused on getting the right fitting jacket that I didn't really pay attention to the pants. A week after the purchase, I was half way on the other side of the world dressing up to go to my friend's wedding. When I put the pants on, I said, "What the heck?!" The pants had no belt loop. I was a bit taken by surprise because I've never seen it before. So now that I am back in the States, I am thinking about adding the belt loop. But my question is should I? I am 6ft 166lbs. All my shirts and pants are "slim fit." Is the no belt loop pants just fine?

    Yes, this is intentional. The side adjusters obviate the need for a belt and slims down the whole look. Do not add belt loops.

    Yes. But, I think it will take some time for me to get use to them...no belt loop = weird

    Yes, I think adding belt loop would ruin the whole pants. It does look "fluid" though (with no belt loops)

    Just leaave the pants as is, rudals is correct in that it makes the whole thing look fluid because it was designed to be like that.

    Just wear them as designed it is a good look and feel. You will in any event not be able to get matching cloth for loops and it would thus look awful if you tried to modify them.

    The RLBL pants are really good if you don't have a too much waist fat. If you are thinking that they will fall when you walk, this is not true. They are very comfortable as they are not very tight at the waist.
