and i hate that the buckle of the belt is glimpsed under the buttoned coat.
I have always liked the adjustable waistband (unfortunately very rare in Italian fashion and bespoke).
I like the cleanness and neatness of this solution.
I have read that one of best adjustable waistband was the so called "Daks Tops:
trousers featured something known as Daks tops, invented by Simpsons of Piccadilly.
With Daks tops the waist is adjusted by button-tabs on each side, and these tabs are connected to an elastic band that runs through a tunnel around the back of the waist. With these tabs the waist can fit very precisely, and the elastic allows adjustment throughout the days as the waist expands and contracts.
Seems that Anthony Sinclair did the "Daks tops" for his trousers:
And seems that today Daks tops are optional by Henry Poole
I happened to be wearing a pair when I went to be measured up at Poole and they said, "Right. Daks-back trousers, turnups, pleats . . ." I had to slow them down since I wanted the second pair of trousers on a different model. That suit's still in progress, but clearly Poole can do Daks backs.
How is make a Daks tops waistband?
how you realise this if a customer ask?
And are others good adjustable waistbands that works better then a belt?
