He mentioned that he wants a relatively precise waist so the front lays clean across the waistband and crotch. He's mentioned this for all my pants with side tabs and belts.Hmmm... I'm curious as to why your tailor would be so against a looser waist in the trews. My understanding is that, depending on how the trews are cut, a looser waist can actually improve the line of the trouser silhouette, allowing enough room throughout the waist and seat area so the crotch isn't so restricted (said restriction being a cause of the messy crotch/pleat look I assume). That is, if you're planning on wearing them with braces, but since you plan on wearing the trews with a belt, he may be on to something. Either way, rooting you on.
I borderline like the waist a half to a full size loose for comfort reasons. I bloat quite a bit by the end of the day.
You're right that a looser waist would work well with braces, but I will be going with a belt.
If you cinch a loose waist snugly with a belt or side tabs, the crotch bags out and pleats are created. I've noticed this on all my casual pants.
