Depending on my early morning position....I start my belt counter clock wise looking down.....or clock wise looking up. [emoticon]
I'm older now so its less complicated gettin' in my Big Smith bibs.

And only unhook one strap on them, so less chance of twist

Lefty here, and if I put my belt through the loops right to left my big, brass, "#1 DAD" belt buckle will be upside down. In my 75+ years, the belts, even military, have always been started in the loop to the left of the waistband closure.
Now that my waist is bigger than my hips, the belt doesn't hold my pants up very well, so I wear suspenders. Since the suspenders do not have the means of carrying my Leatherman holster, which I feel incomplete without, I also wear a belt.
That Leatherman is also a minor reason I will not fly. TSA would have a conniption fit if I showed up at security check in wearing it!

Shirt buttons are on the left side of a shirt, belt goes in left side loops. Now, it has been fifty years since I have been in a uniform, but it always started on the left. Of course a lot has changed in fifty years, heck they don't even polish their boots anymore. They have those ugly brown fuzzy looking things to wear around......

Ok. I have always, including in the army,I think, put my belt on, into the loops left side irst and and to the right side, with the end of the belt facing left. Someone told me I was putting it on backards. It is supposed to go on left side first and round to the front. he said. So that the belt end is facing right and overlaps in the same direction as pants and shirt.
Which is it?
Darn, you mean for 70 years i've been doing it wrong, (i don't count the first 4 years, I didn't wear a belt).[emoticon]

People shouldn't have to make decisions like this. Other ones I've wrestled with are which arm should I put in my shirt or jacket first and which leg first when putting pants and shoes on.

Just pull you pants up to your armpits and no one will even notice your belt!

i start on my left side, circle around my back and end up on my right side.
That way the buckle is always on the left side.

But, when i put on my stocks i always put the left foot on first and then the right foot.. When i put on my pants i always put the right foot in first. then the left foot.
