I hate doing belt loops. But nevertheless I have to do them, sigh.

A very simple question (I have never dared to ask): How do you space them? And where do you think they should be placed.

In which way and order do you attach them?

 

I did a trouser for a waistcirc with148 cm. I came up with 12 of them. Urghs.

Well, I usually put them on:

 

Centre of front leg, behind and near (but not on) the side seam and one at around 5 to 6 cm away from the centre back.

For wider waists I'd put one on each side of the side seam and an additional one on the back dart.

For super-wide waists add where you think they are needed most.

Same as SG, I place the side seam ones 1" from side seam towards centre back seam. Also, sometimes one directly over the centre back or one 1" each side

And when you have 148cm waist, then just space additional ones between those main loops. I hate them too.

I have seen the effect with persons of large girth of not enough belt loops where you get a drag down between the belt loops if they are too widely spaced so I would be inclined to work on a spacing rather than just a count and to some extent this will depend on how stiff the waistband is.

Thanks for all your tips. So it could be even more. Bad news.

Why not on the side seam, Schneidergott?

He wears mostly braces (or is it suspenders?), by the way. But with custom made trousers he can wear them with a belt. (Shot myself in  the knee)

 

Another question: He has the X-form of braces. Where should the X - sit on the back?

Haven't got a particular explanation. Just have never seen one placed directly on the seam.

Because you double the thickness in the layers there. Just put the belt loop one seam away from the side seam.

The top of the hip bone will "pinch the flesh" against the belt if a loop is placed directly above the side seam.
