    Is this a terrible idea?

    Yes. Think Dad jeans.

    Those are loose and light colored, though. Does removing the belt loops and adding side adjusters automatically make them look like garbage?

    If you don't want them loose, why do you want side adjusters? Jeans without belt loops are going to look weird. And Dad jeans are not light colored. I have a pair of Brooks Brothers dark denim jeans I bought just for kicks on Ebay. They are definitely Dad jeans.

    I like some belt/adjuster on all pants because it helps keep the jeans on for my shape. I was just curious about having no belt at all for a different style and comfort, but the ability to put them on and tighten them. Jeans get tight when you wasn't them and looser later, so it is useful to be able to adjust the waste when they are worn longer.

    I'd advise against it to be honest! I googled some pictures and they look even worse than Dad jeans. If its the functionality you are after, then maybe you can try something like an internal adjustable waist band?

    I am a dad and I resent the continual suggestion that we do not have style. SIDE ADJUSTERS??? did you seriously ask that question or are you trolling this forum? :) Why don't you go for comfort waist with elastic at the back? (laughing) Also jeans are never a fashion item - they are for cleaning your motorbike in (or with) or doing other manual work. :D

    The waist adjusters work better on thin, soft and lightweight fabrics than denim. They are also a feature from more refined style and don't really work with rugged jeans.

    Best way is probably to just get the right size and then use a solid belt.

    Denim as we all know is a rather thick and casual fabric, but..If you're looking for a mix of a casual fabric such as denim and classic silhouette with comfort that side adjusters brings, I suggest go for a lightweight denim fabric, this one can be made with side adjusters, even more, can be made with pleats and cuffs, I have such trousers and it looks very interesting. But obviously it's an option for, I would say open minded classic style afficionado ;)
    I was on a sunday dinner in my denim trousers with side adjusters and pleats, what you think?

    Interesting. I cannot see the adjusters, of course, but right demin would drape very differently than heavy selvedge.
