“Limelight” brand Made In Japan with Tochigi leather belt. Only $20.

 

I think sugar cane belts are slightly better finished but can’t beat these for $20. Finish is a little “thin” and I think it may fray a bit, the leather is a little dry.

This thing is ridiculous in all the right ways. Not everyone's cup of tea but I think this belt is so cool. HTC with Self Edge. Stingray inlays, leather feels nice. Kind of like wearing a thinner belt after years of wearing thicker ones.

That’s nice that yours is brown on the inside... mine was black on inside and made gross marks marks on my patches.

hi guys, i need some styling advice in regards to the color tone of leather belt and leather shoes/boots.

Is it ok to wear a dark brown belt with a pair of light brown shoes (e.g. alden indy 405)? will it look awkward?

Thank you very much for your help ~

And one more photo of my belts – a wonderful demonstration of how beautiful the patina of the oak bark bridle leather looks.

Good question mate! I think it looks better to keep the colour of belt and shoes/boots the same. However, I was reading around and, for casual wear, there is a view that there's more flexibility. I'd say this is only flexibility within shades of brown though as brown/black belt/shoes or vice versa doesn't look quite right imo. I think for casual, the leather type can also vary and look good as a contrast e.g. leather belt with rough out shoes.

Contradicting my preference above, I've been wearing a darker tan belt with lighter boondockers (see recent WAYWT post). I think it's possible to get away with it but I'm not sure it's the best so I'm mulling over belt options myself.

Apart from our kind of obsessives, I'm not sure anyone out there notices with casual wear!!  It boils down to what you think it looks like.

Why not post a pic? See what the sufu group have to say.

As above would anyone without a obsessive intrest in denim / menswear notice...:D

For me any brown shade of belt with any brown shoe black belt with a black shoe.

Variables and choices...
Lighter tan boots (which will darken over time)
3 leather belts of different colour leather, texture, buckle metal and buckle style (Tender, Honest Thomas, IH); 1 basic canvas belt
Applied to Jeans, chinos, army pants
Let's not go there with wallet chains or types of denim or rough out belts
With jeans - all work but I personally prefer lighter tan
With chinos - Tender by virtue of the buckle, though a less thick belt would be a worthy consideration
With army green - the canvas beater
And they thought that splitting the atom was complicated!!! :D
And I bet I have missed a good few criteria in my analysis!!!

What are good alternatives to Equus for a 1.5" wide, high quality strap (on which to put a buckle)? My default is to go to Equus, but I'm open to looking around...

 

Thx

Quality is excellent.

This was 1 year old

I am also comparing between leather Baker and Sedgwick

Hey Petez, I own 2 wallets from Charlie at Equus Leather made from Haas Barenia and can attest to his devotion to superb workmanship and quality materials. He is also a pleasure to deal with. Checkout the Equus thread at styleforum.net where you can read the accolades from his many devoted and satisfied customers who rate both Sedgwick and Baker leathers extensively. Good Luck
