    Hi all,

    I’d really like a couple of pairs of trousers with side adjusters but am struggling to find any that aren’t sold as part of a suit or are priced higher than what I’m willing to pay (let’s say approximately $200USD, which rules Australian tailors out). I intend to use them for office wear and casual drinks etc - usually only with a shirt as I live in a humid climate, however I’m willing to consider any material. I’ve previously had Acne Wall Street trousers, which I loved, and Orlebar Brown Griffon chinos. Any recommendations of brands or websites that do such trousers would be greatly appreciated.

    Spier and Mackay offers side adjusters as an option I believe.

    As I understand it, you need to leave them a note when you check-out and/or follow-up with an email shortly after placing the order.

    You can have any of the trousers available at Kent Wang made with side adjusters at no additional charge.

    I have two local tailors who will add side adjusters and remove the belt loops from trousers. They use the excess fabric cut from the pant legs when the trousers are hemmed. One tailor will supply the metal, but for the other I must supply my own parts. I found them online from a dry cleaner supply store. I don’t recall the exact price, but they were less than $2 (USD) per set of 2. I bought a bunch of sets.
