Wearing Pants - Over Belly or Under Belly?

Inspired by the cargo shorts thread, what is the best way to wear pants? Over belly or under belly?

Under belly looks stupid. Wear a long shirt untucked to camouflage said belly, problem solved.

I wear them lower (under belly), but not low enough to be considered a thug.

I voted under because when you go over you veer into the high-waist look and that never looks good.

Used to be under. Recently switched to over to help keep my pants up.

Under belly only works if you have a dunlap.

If it was good enough for Bogart, it's good enough for you!

I think at the point where you're making the decision whether to wear pants over or under your belly, you should probably be making decisions regarding other areas of your life as well.

Mine usually start the day above the belly and slowly migrate south.

Re: Wearing Pants - Over Belly or Under Belly?

When I didn't have a belly I wore some pants pretty high, but that was the cut of the trouser and the style at the time (think Cavaricci baggies, tailored suits, other high-waisted fashion of the 80s).

Now that I have a big ol' gut, under. Dang, I can't even see my belt buckle

Underbelly, unless you can't see your belt buckle.

Wearing your pants over your belly is the No. 1 cause of front butt.

Re: Wearing Pants - Over Belly or Under Belly?

Just so I'm clear, are we talking about the rise of the pants, ie how high or low the waistline sits, or do all you guys have guts that hang out over your belt?

Under belly.

Over belly gives me a camel toe.
