I bought the reversible leather?
On a side note, I was wondering what the canvas belt and shoe shown here are? The canvas belt is this one from Saddler. However, you can find a similar pair to these plimsoll sneakers on Amazon or Nordstrom. What a great article. Perham this is a fashion mistake, but I really have no clue. When it comes to your choice of belt, I would definitely have stuck with a black canvas belt.
For that reason, I would have chosen a wide rather than narrow belt. Therefore, I find myself morally obliged to express my gratitude towards you! Thank you and Kudos, BTW! As for the belt, I would check to see if the dealer from which you will buy the chukka boots also can provide you with a suede belt in the same colour. Alternatively a belt in regular leather in the same colour. I was hoping you could tell me what brand the brown leather Oxford shoe is in the article pictures.
The brown leather shoes in this article are made by Barker Shoes. Your articles are always on point. I read the one on shoes the other day and I got a pair of navy canvas loafers to go with dark jeans, and now I was looking to get a belt that could go with these.
They pair great with light tan, or light checked beige slack or even grey checked…. Now, your belt colour should be the same as your shoes regardless of what pants you are wearing.
Could you reply with a picture link to the shoes? If you did I would be able to guide you further on pants colour. Do you have issues with the middle of the leather belt sagging? Is this because my belt is too tight or too loose? All my belt exhibit this after a relatively short period of time. Yes, sometimes I do. I think it has more to do with the numbers of belt loops than whether you wear it too tight or loose.
Belts tend to sag on pants that only has five belt loops. More expensive pants usually have seven belt loops which help prevent sagging. I ordered a Carrhart belt and the buckle was too big uncomfortable when sitting down. Is there such a belt that is specifically marketed to what Im looking for and any suggestions? Just remember to keep the belt colour coordinated to your shoes and buy several different coloured belts if you have shoes in more than one colour.
I wear black leather Doctor Martens, dark denim jeans, and a 35mm black leather SlideBelt. The SlideBelt is a dual ratchet design and the full grain leather strap has no holes. This works out because SlideBelts are only sold in 35mm widths. There are some other ratchet type belts available in 40mm designs Mission.
However, I like the buckle design on the SlideBelts. I really liked your article. I have a few questions. Is it better to have a loop that is metal and part of the buckle? This is quite often how it is with reversible belts. Or is it better to have the loop to be the same material as the belt itself i. Interestingly, all of your belt pictures show the loop to be the same material as the belt itself.
In my experience, a metal loop can be more noisy than a leather loop. And a metal loop can stick out quite far and potentially have sharp edges which might catch your child when they run into you for a hug. Brown on one side, black on the other. What is your opinion on reversible belts? They usually have a metal loop. For me, I usually wear casual brown leather shoes…so I need a brown belt. Then I have the black belt for other shoes.
So a reversible belt works nicely for me. However, when you put the belt through the buckle and then pull it back against the buckle to insert the prong in the hole in the belt, I find this pulling of the belt to bend it backwards against the buckle to be stressful. Maybe not so damaging? So then the belt begins to look tattered.
Similar to how bending a thin piece of metal back and forth in the same spot will cause fatigue and breakage — it seems that the same thing will happen with a reversible leather belt much sooner than a single sided belt. This should help it to last longer. OR — spend a bit more and buy two belts and avoid a reversible belt. I recently decided to buy two Black Brown belts at the Bay — one black and one brown. But they went on sale, and sold out of my size before I could buy.
Whether you choose a metal or a leather loop is up to you. I find that a leather loops usually makes the belt more symmetric and low-key looking. Buying two ordinary belts — one black and one brown — seems like a simpler and more economic decision in the long run.
So informative and easy to read. I will definitely recommend your website to my husband. Is that a word that anyone else knows? Wearing a belt is something most men are accustomed to. So where to start? Therefore, the best place to start is with: A narrow leather belt in the same colour as your leather dress shoes—to wear with your leather dress shoes. The Belt and Pants Should Match Formality Narrow belts with dress pants, chinos, dark jeans, and trouser shorts; and wide belts with lighter denim, cargo pants, and cargo shorts.
The belt and shoes should be of the same colour Black with black, brown with brown, blue with blue, and so on. So what makes belts for men dressy, and what makes them casual? Wide casual belts are best worn with casual pants, such as lighter denim pants and cargo pants. But belts also come in different colours … … so how do you pick the right one for your outfit?
Use Secret 2 to find Your Belt Colour: Match Belt and Shoe Colour Colour-coordinating your belt with your shoes is—after picking the right belt width—often more than enough to get you through the day with style. Shoes typically come in one of these three materials: Canvas Plain leather Suede leather All you have to make sure of is that your belt is the same material as your shoes.
If your shoes are suede … well, your belt should be suede too. To sum it up, here are the belts you would wear with these shoes: Match belt width before colour, and colour before belt material. Match belt and shoe colour before concerning yourself with materials. And when it comes to belts for men, I use this super-simple strategy: The belt material Whether the belt buckle is plated or solid metal When it comes to leather belts for men, the leather will become stretched and deformed after about nine to 12 months of daily use.
