I bought two pairs of Black Fleece trousers and while the seat fit perfectly, I needed to let the waist out about an inch. When I recieved the trousers back from my tailor, I noticed that the waist was still a bit too tight and that in the process of letting out the waist, they sewed together the split waistband. Is this normal? Aesthetically, I prefer the split - but if this is normal, I can understand. Lastly, when I tried the pants on with the tailor, we both thought an inch would suffice. Without the split, I wonder if that extra little bit of expansion makes the pants fit differently. I'm obviously going to ask them to let the pants out just a bit more, but should I also ask to modify the waist band so that it is split again?
