This has gone way too far now. The shoes were bad enough, but understandable, but removing a strip of leather that holds your pants up? It's a damn piece of dried animal only a few millimeters thick, are they going to want us to start putting our body parts on the belt........
Although I made a suggestion up thread to buy a fabric belt and sew it onto your pants, since then I read someplace, don't think it was on TS/S, that the TSA forced someone to cut their sew-in, non-removable belt off their pants.
