What is the piece that holds the pant legs together called? Is there an "official1" name? Or is there just a commonly agreed on term?

They are referred to as "Minifig Hips" almost everywhere: [partlink:970:4].

The LEGO Pick-a-brick service doesn't sell them without legs, and just refers to the whole construction as "Mini Figure Mini Lower Part":

Pick-a-brick Lower Body Part

Since that's utterly boring, I suggest we just start calling the thing what it actually is: a thong. Or a speedo. – Joubarc Apr 18 '12 at 8:46
@Joubarc Like the Beach Troopers from the LEGO Star Wars games? – Zhaph - Ben Duguid Apr 18 '12 at 9:39
And surely it's only a thong/speedo they are a different colour from the the legs, otherwise it's just waistband and flys/hips. – Zhaph - Ben Duguid Apr 18 '12 at 9:43
I just call it a belt – shea May 3 '14 at 12:24
