Fashion and stethoscope-wearing

When I was a medical student/junior doctor, a long time ago now, we used to carry our stethoscopes with the earpieces looped round our necks and the bell dangling at our waists. Nowadays the fashion seems to be to have the whole apparatus draped round the wearer's neck with the earpieces on one side and the bell on the other. This probably is more convenient, but I wonder when the changeover came about.
