With a 28-29″ waist, it is just about impossible. I need a 30″ belt. One place. I have found them include the Men’s Warehouse. One good note: I wanted to by some underwear at Kohl’s, a couple years ago and they didn’t have anything smaller than a medium in boxers in the store. I wrote to them and complained. I’m not sure if there is any correlation, but, they now have a full assortment of small sized underwear at least.
