What regulation covers the wear of the ceremonial belt?

Although AR670-1 is silent on the wear of the saber and belt, Local unit SOPs may govern the ceremonial belt wear at official functions, so be sure to check these as well. We discuss this issue more fully in our FAQ.
Typically how far apart should the belt loops be from the belt buckle? And is the belt typically worn between the last 2 buttons of the coat?

There is no set standard in AR-670-1 or FM 3-21.5 regarding the location of belt loops and placement of the belt on the uniform. Local unit SOPs govern the ceremonial belt wear at official functions. Below is a link to FM 3-21.5 with a depiction of the belt in use (Appendix F, page 244), for your reference.
Yes! The Enlisted Army Ceremonial Belt can be worn by all Enlisted Personnel with the Army Service Uniform on ceremonial occasions, with or without a saber. Local unit SOPs may govern the ceremonial belt wear at official functions, so be sure to check these as well.
