Damn, so they aren't really used in medieval Worried

So what is the most common belt style that used in 13 century?

Here are some basic pics. You can get an idea, and go from there.

What about SCA-style O-ring belts with only one ring (rather than two)? I know they're not medieval, but I've been wondering if their origins really lay with the SCA or if there were other 20th- or 19th-century predecessors.

But the example you provided was that of a double-ring belt, which is normally worn in a very different way (without knotting, just passing the belt back through the rings in such a fashion that it's pinched in place between the two rings).
