There’s more to a belt than keeping your pants on. A belt is a statement – an icon built upon centuries of history. Ancient Greek and Roman soldiers used their belts to carry weapons; the Russian army wore wide belts around their waists to improve their stature, the Mongols used belts as peace offerings to seal alliances, while the Franks believed a man took on the power of his enemy upon taking his belt.
Today we don’t steal each other’s belts, and most of us don’t use them to carry weapons.Instead, they’re there for style. The belt has become a staple part of men’s smart-wear. A suit without a belt looks either edgy or downright absurd.
The most important thing to ask yourself when buying a formal belt is – what type of suit do you intend to wear it with? If you are accessorizing your most formal of formal suits – say that black classic you reserve for job interviews and funerals, then you’ll want to be looking at a very traditional black belt with a plain silver buckle. Some of our belts come with a slight perforated design along the leather strap. This subtle detail is fine with formal attire – however your belt should never steal the show from your suit.
If you’re looking for a belt that’s more versatile – just at home on a pair of jeans as on that trendy petrol slim-fit you bought for work, then opt for a brown leather belt. Browse our selection for inspiration.
