I wore belted pants as late as 1994, and still prefer belted pants for non-basketball officiating situations. But when I saw some men's college officials wearing them I tried them and really liked them and how they looked as a basketball official.

I retired from officiating college ball in 2008, and can't ever being told that I had to wear beltless pants for college games. I do know that the OhioHSAA does not mandate what type of pants to wear but it is extremely rare to see an official officiating a VAR game wearing belted pants.

If my memory is correct I think that Connecticut requires belted pants. But I am sure that BillyMac will be along sometime tomorrow to either confirm or deny what I just said about Connecticut.
