    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?
