Advantage & disadvantage about split waist brand. My comment is it will break open very easity.
Why do you think that?
Maybe my tailor doesn't know how to do it properly? Can you explain how it should be constructed properly for a split waist brand?
Do you mean the waistband simply being cut in two parts (which makes alteration of the waist/seat easier), or do you mean a V-split where it is left partially open at the top?
Either way, I do not see any reason it should split open any easier.
I mean a V-split where is left partially open at the top. It is without belt loop and I normally wear without suspender. Maybe the joint of V-split is not strong enough?
Those are known as fishtail backs, and they're designed to be exclusively worn with suspenders (braces for you UK folk).
Sounds like you're doing something wrong, or your tailor is.
No, there are plenty of trousers which have a V-split without being fish-tail or being worn with braces.
I have a pair of HY trousers and they are split in the back, they also have belt loops...am I missing something?
No, cptjeff is the one missing something. This is a fishtail back:
But plenty of trousers have a V-split waistband without being fishtail:
If you don't want belt loops and you dont want to wear braces you could opt for side tabs/ adjusters. That's what I have on most of my suit trousers though I will wear braces occasionally.
Absolutely no basis for suggesting it would split.
What is the purpose of this design, please?
