The Austrians call it a Bauchspange. There you have a new term to use and make new Forvmites tremble in admiration.

Maybe this was a decision of looks. Remember, Matt did not say he dislikes the look of back pockets but merely that he doesn't use them. If I remember correctly, he stated elsewhere that he finds the look of a pocketless trouser seat distrubing. I went for a single back pocket (on odd trousers) for similar reasons. As these pants get worn without a jacket from time to time, I felt they looked better this way.

That's not the trouser front. It's Vox's gigantic, incredibly large, well-trained... gotta go now.
