Belt Loops

Early this morning, while inserting my belt through the belt loops, I realized I really like them.

I don't really know, nor do I wish to research, who invented them but life is easier WITH them.

I couldn't resist


Belt loops were first invented when pants were first made out of jean material. Back in the nineteenth century Levi Strauss first created the jean pants and when he did he gave them belt loops. This is when levi's jeans were first made.

They were invented in 1831 by a Frenchman named Jacques du Pantaloon. Although it has been suspected that his wife, Aunjanue de Bretelles, a famous brassiere maker, actually came up with the design after her secret lover, Rainier Ceinture, became emasculated when he fell from a horse while his lingerie stayed with the saddle. She was not pleased.
du Pantaloon later became infamous for inventing what he named the Jacques strap, something much appreciated by many of us today, especially those in advancing age.

I liked fruit loops when I was a kid. The older I get the more I appreciate belt loops. And expansion waist bands aren't bad either. If I could just perfect an elixir that would swap the direction of travel of my waistline and hairline I'd bottle it and start shopping for a Newell.

I think I will save this one to fertilize the garden come spring time.

And then there are those young guys that wear the baggy pants several sizes too big with no belt or suspenders. We seen one just the other day, coming toward us and poof, his pants hit the ground. Real Kool, pun intended.

For the life of me I can't figure out what them belt loops are for! My suspenders are too wide to go through the dang things!

Actually, garden fertilizer was also invented that same year....but that's a story for another time I suppose.

Wasn't Rainier's dog named Hippolyte'? and isn't your dissertation part of the unpublished excerpts from the Voynich manuscripts? I could swear I had cheese on my cracker just a minute ago.
