Buyer Guide – How To Choose The Men’s Belt?

Men’s Belts: Materials

Let’s start with a brief excursus on the materials that make up the belts that today’s market offers. They are different and all have peculiar characteristics.

The belt is not only a functional accessory but it is much more. A belt is an object that adds charm to clothing and completes the outfit; that’s why the choice of this key element of the male wardrobe is fundamental to characterize your look.

Let’s go into a bit more detail by analyzing the materials used to make men’s belts and the characteristics associated with each type. The materials, in the objects, as well as in the clothing.

In addition to determining the specific functions of a particular article, serve to particularize the design and therefore the aesthetics of a specific product:

Leather

This is certainly the most used material. If the quality of the leather used is good, the final product will be not only beautiful, long-lasting and very functional.

Leather can be worked through different methods. For this reason, depending on the type of belt you want to make, there are models that require very high thickness and rigidity of the leather and others that prefer a leather so thin that it can be wrinkled almost like a sheet of paper.

In this case, your choice will have to be guided by your personal preferences keeping in mind that belts with a thicker leather could be a little less elegant

Jute

A textile fiber widely used for its excellent characteristics: versatile, robust and resistant. An excellent material with which it is possible to create many shapes with different colors.

Precisely because of its peculiarities, jute is widely used for sportswear even if we also find it in beautiful applications used to embellish more elegant garments. A classic belt made with jute is the military belt.

Polyester, material deriving from the polymerization between acid and alcohol. It is a cheaper product than leather but easily workable and adaptable both for more sporty and casual belts, and for much more elegant belts. The right compromise for you who love to alternate the formal look with the informal one.

Types of Men’s Belts

Ceremony 

They are elegant belts with a clean design that is combined mostly with men’s shoes and other accessories suitable for events and special occasions.

The leather used is often shiny or semi-shiny, in particular, both smooth leather models and belts with exotic prints such as Tejus, Viper, Crocodile, Alligator, and Tortoise are fine. Among the ceremony belts, those with modern prints such as carbon is very successful.

The seams are in tone and the yarn used and thin. In addition, there are no-sewn belts, the so-called welded belts, which are very elegant and appreciated. The buckle can be shiny or brushed, generally nickel in color, gold is returning a little at a time.

Elegant 

This group is larger because it includes part of the classic and ceremonial belts. These belts are produced with either shiny or matte, smooth, printed or natural grain leather. The seams can be both in tone and in slight contrast.

The buckles generally have a square shape which is more easily combined. Among the elegant belts, reversible belts with swivel buckles are having great success, offering the possibility of wearing them with two different clothes, generally black and brown.

Classic 

This is probably the most worn and sought after category of men’s belts. The classic belt must be comfortable and wearable every day, it must be soft and resistant, for this reason, it is made with natural leather.

Beautiful and soft are the calfskin belts, precious and resistant are the vegetable cowhide belts. On this type of belt, the seams can be contrasting and the buckle can be slightly rounded or covered. The belts classic men are “smart” because they combine easily.

Casual 

In this group, we have Casual and Sports belts. The casual belt is comfortable, suitable for everyday use, has a more youthful design and a stronger personality than the classic belt.

The term casual and sporty is often used indifferently to identify this type of dynamic and versatile belt. The casual man follows fashion by proposing his own taste and personality in clothing. Its belt stands out without being noticed.

Jeans 

The typical Jeans belt is high, comfortable, enveloping and must express a feeling of robustness. This belt would also fall into the casual-comfortable group, however, we prefer to describe it separately since it is dedicated only to jeans.

We point out the leather belts made from strips of vegetable leather 40 mm high and with unlined thicknesses of 4 mm. The stems can be simple and without seams or processed with complex seams or simply with hand stitching.

The Jeans belt is for both men and women, it is produced in different colors, some seasonal and others always in fashion.

Fashion Belts

The fashion belts (in English Fashion belts) and the trendy or trendy belt, stand out for the particular beauty of the buckles, which can have special finishes or particular designs.

In the same way, the leather of the belt can be particular, worked or specially tanned. The trendy belt is the most important accessory for the man who wears fashion, is attentive to fashion and does not want to go unnoticed.

Braided and Elastic

The Braided belts and the elastic belts are very versatile and comfortable, suitable for both casual wear and sports. The greater comfort of this type of belt is due to the intrinsic elastic characteristics of the weaves regardless of whether they are leather, elastic fabrics or blended with wool.

Furthermore, these belts, having no holes, allow the belt to be closed at any point. The great comfort can be appreciated immediately once worn. This type of belt is also suitable for both men and women.

Suede and Suede

The suede belts are fine a bit ‘everywhere, giving a touch of class and sportiness in every type of clothing. They are appreciated by both men and women, thanks to the wide range of colors and the wide wearability.

In particular, we point out the belts with buckles covered in leather with a more youthful look, the suede belts with rubber-covered buckles and the multicolored suede belts for a “trendy” look.

Vintage 

The vintage belts are always in fashion, they are made with specially treated leather to create the effect “experienced in a workmanlike manner” and buckles are similarly brushed or antique.

They are beautiful, particular and robust. They are often characterized by large stitching, handmade and also patchwork with leather. They go well with many types of clothing becoming the protagonists of your look.

They go well with casual trousers, they go well with jeans. They never grow old, indeed the older they are, the more beautiful they are. Suitable for both male and female clothing.

How to Wear the Belt

The belt must be worn at the third hole, which is the central one, leaving about 15 centimeters of a tip from the point where the belt is fastened.

This rule applies as much to leather, leather or suede belts that have 5 holes, as well as to elastic and braided belts that are without a hole.

This rule will also help you when purchasing the belt. You can learn more about this by reading our guide on how to choose the belt size.

What Height Should the Belt Have?

First of all, in the choice of men’s belts, height must be considered. Normally a low belt is more elegant while a high belt will be more sporty, so the one from mm. 35 is more classic and elegant while the one from mm. 40 is more sporty and casual.

What Characteristics Must Have a Good Men’s Belt

Aside from your taste or your particular need, it must be made with quality leather. The leather of the belt is the first thing that can come into contact with yours, directly or indirectly, by transpiring through your clothing.

The made in Italy belts are made with selected Italian hides and tanned mostly with vegetable tannins, in particular, we point out the vegetable leather or vegetable cowhide belts.

Low-cost tanned hides in other countries can be harmful to health. In addition, adhesives and other materials are used in the production of belts which can harm health in the same way. our leather belts use fine natural non-harmful adhesives.

Always choose made in Italy belts made with Italian leather or even better vegetable leather. Even the lining, or bottom, must be in real leather, for the reasons already listed. The skin is resistant to heat and cold, has a small natural elasticity and is, therefore, more comfortable, pleasant to the touch and smell.

Possibly choose handmade belts, which give the guarantee of a handmade and well-kept product. Finally, if you intend to shorten the belt after purchase or plan to do it in the future, always check that it is adjustable.

What to Avoid

Beware of cheap belts, they may not be real leather, deteriorating quickly, or they may have been made of poor materials.

Stay away from the belts of prestigious brands sold at bargain prices, even during sales. They may be non-original or made of low-quality materials.
