I was listening to my Mitch Hedberg CD, and realized...that he makes a very interesting point with his Belt joke

"I have a belt that's holding up my pants, and the pants have belt loops, which hold up the belt. Which makes me ask...what the hell is going on down there? Who is the real hero?"

So, i ask the pit...who IS the real hero? Does the belt hold up the pants? or do the belt loops hold up the pants?

You don't necessarily need the belt loops if you make the belt tight enough.

Belt.

If its tight enough to do its job it doesnt really need the hoops.

unless your wearing it for asthetics only, then i guess its the hoop.


Holy shit.

It's like the alley-oop in basketball. You need both to make it work, so they should be considered equally important.

Belt hoops are part of the pants, ergo the belt is holding up the pants.


This. The loops are not holding anything.

EDIT: Just read that^

I've tried wearing a belt on pants with no belt loops, and no matter how tight I did the belt it would fall down. Belts can't be worn without belt loops.

The belt loops keep the belt anchored to the pants so that the pants don't slide under the belt. With that said, if the belt is tight enough, then you don't need belt loops.

No, it's just a resting point for the belt so gravity doesn't win!

the loops just hold the belt in place in case the pants fall without it
look at it this way
your pants falling is the fire
the loop is the fire extingusher(you can put the fire out without it but this is the easiest way. also the fire extinguisher is always in the room whether the person is there or not)
the belt is the guy who puts out the fire
when the guy puts out the fire hes the hero he just used the fire extinguisher to put it out

If the belts are so tight as to hold your pants while your standing up, it's gonna feel like mighty shit when you sit down.

The belt loop is frippery. The belt would wotk just as well with a few strategically-placed holes in the waistband of the trousers, so the loops are merely an aesthetic employment of offcuts from the main bolt of material.

The belt loops are the un-sung hero.
The belt loops make it every time,but the belt may be replaced with anything of a similiar nature,i.e a shoelace or rope.
