Gartel

Question:
Kvod Harov,

If a person wears a belt is there a need for him to also wear a gartel for davening?

Answer:

No, the belt is sufficient according to halachic criteria. The custom of Chasidim is to wear a gartel in any event, while in non Chassidic communities the belt or waistband of one’s pants is relied on.
