  • I need a new belt to wear with a suit.

    Ok an unusual topic but I do need to replace `old faithfull` after 15 years of continuous service. I had a jeans belt that I used under my suits for years and need something stylish with a 1 inch width and good quality (not the rubbish from Kmart). I used to know of a good brand but lost the catalogue a few years ago moving house and am willing to pay the $$$ to get this from o/seas if necessary.

    As I work in the corporate world I need to look smart but I also carry the usual array of mobile phones, ID cards, etc and the occassional radio for special event work. Would appreciate any advice or hints.

    Gucci makes mens leather belts, they have a nice one for about $365. That's about as far from "K-mart rubbish" as you get I think.

      This is the one I use, very nice, and heavy duty.

          These look as though they'd fit the bill IMHO...

            I have one from Dutyman I've worn for about 13 years now...On duty to attach my duty belt to, and at home/out and about. I figure, from the looks of it, it's got about another 10 years or so. It's a black "basketweave garrison" belt, 1.5 inches wide.

              WOW so many choices and I actually found another belt for about $125 US that will do fine. I have another one on order that is really designed for jeans but looks very smart. I have also ordered some stuff from Galls and Streichers (make note to never look at US sites with a credit card in same room).

              The bloody suit trousers on most are 1.25" loops so I cannot run a Garrison belt (I wish I could) and this is notorious on 1 suit I bought for the night I asked my wife to marry me (bloody loops were too small for my belt) so I had to hitch the belt over the top (hiding it with my coat).

              As I said, I sometimes carry a small radio, PDA mobile and 2nd mobile so need to be able to gear up quickly but not loose my trousers in the process so consider the money spent on a belt that lasted me 15 or so years to be a very good investment.
