The webbing belt peril | Fail

Unless you're trying to pull a David Carradine or something, we really don't see the point in owning a webbing belt. OK, maybe to support last year's ill-fitting shorts while you stand at the grill, but we're concerned at the way this overly casual item is being foisted upon us as an acceptable accessory for proper attire. The culmination of this menace was a June GQ article that showed actor/dork Chris Pine holding up his suit pants with these glorified packing straps and featured a Tom Ford D-ring for $650. (Yes, that's the price for the nylon belt, not the suit. About $20/inch for those of you keeping score at home.) Hopefully that was the official jumping of the shark for this trend, and now we can all move on.
