I have come tardily to the Belt Train but I have come with vigor (and belts). I love the shit out of the belt-at-natural-waist but regard it as not entirely superfluous since it serves the dual purpose of breaking up a shirt and of saying see how skinny I am right here. Comme ça.
But the hip-belt-that-is-not-through-my-belt-loops literally does nothing outside of making me feel like a gunslinger.
I like it, me. I have a fondness for gunslingers. But I religiously matched my slouch socks to my oversized t-shirt for all of 7th grade, so my fashion choices haven't always been winners.
What think ye? Viable alternative to being pinched at the waist (where I least like to be pinched)? Or too gunslingery (is there such a thing? *pow*)?
