Side adjusters with suspender buttons. I don't mind belt loops too much, but I really enjoy the aesthetic of a slightly wider and extended waistband with side adjusters. I also quite like side adjusters on flat fronted trousers as well. A bit more wearable while retaining some sartorial flair, and avoids looking top heavy without a jacket (as long as the rise isn't too high). I'm in the camp who prefers more of a medium-high rise than a true high rise, though.
This is why you’re my dude.Side adjusters. Belts are impractical and looks ugly with tailored trousers. If you want to keep your trousers up and they're not the correct size use braces. Trousers with belts will never drape well. A well draped pair of trousers should hang from the shoulders like they do with braces.
(if you're seriously considering the suggestions from the last couple of posts, don't forget the pleats. Personal preference: get rid of the back pockets as well. They defeat the purpose of a clean look and aren't useful).
My favorite are Stoffa trousers. I go for a slightly tapered leg but straight leg is good too.Thanks for your input so far.
Feel free to share pictures and name brands you think make interesting trousers too.
(fits one to post Ghurka trousers will be awarded a permanent ban from the thread..)
I’m swaying back to belt loops for odd ‘separate’ trousers - I enjoy the look when worn with a slimmer belt. For suit trousers, my preference remains with side tabs, but keep the rear pockets on both please!
We’ll see how the new samples come out!Been sitting on the Cavour sidelines for a minute. Super interested in the development of a HR trouser from you all with a (hopefully) wider hem with and/knee circumference. Seeing you all aim for a HR trouser with a clean line would be great, and certainly get me off the bench. On another note, are the collar points on the Cavour Sartoria line of shirts longer than the regular Cavour line? I find the latter too short.
Excellent. I appreciate the follow up!
