If you are prepared to add some hardware, this sliding splice can be adapted to make a wonderful adjustable rope belt:

That is one cool knot, I'd love to wear a rope belt provided it was tasteful with my clothing. I love that knot though.

This thread reminded me of my Jr. High School days.  We had several dress code rules, one of which was that the boys must wear a belt.  If you didn't have a belt you were sent to the Vice Principals office.  His way of dealing with young scofflaws such as myself was to give us a lenght of rope (sissal, I think) to hold up our pants.  I believe they thought the embarassment was enough that we wouldn't forget again.  If forgetting your belt became a habit, you got detention. 

I wonder if he would have been impressed it I tied the ends in a sheet bend?  8)
