    i've lost a little weight, all of my pants are too big and i've fallen into a size that fits halfway between the holes in my belt. i want suspenders or a stretchable belt to keep my pants up but my girlfriend says no way. i think a stretchable belt that doesn't look like one would be the perfect solution. what do you guys know about expandable belts? thanks

    Never heard of a "stretchable belt". Wouldn't that defeat the purpose of a belt???

    Look up Bob's Belts. They offer a number of belts like I think you are looking for.

    I've conquered the same problem by punching a couple of new holes in my belt.
    Use a .222 case with a chamfered neck in a drill and it cuts a perfect hole. Actually, I've "drilled" about three new holes in one belt. Suspenders work fine but I was told I looked like a dunce wearing both suspenders & a belt. Hell,they kept my pants from falling.

    Forget the belt ... use a bunch of thumb tacks!

    I have used stretchable belts in all colors for the past 20 years. I get them at Walmart or Penneys. Pennys are nicer looking. Only problem is my son likes to see how far they will strech as he can walk around 10 feet with one end, then he lets it go and it hurts like he--.
