A guy who wears silk socks with combat boots, and where Turnbull & Asser is the dress shirt of choice will not be wearing a cheap cotton turtleneck. Not black but this screams Tactle Turtleneck. Ralph Lauren Black Label Leather-Trim Turtleneck Look for something wool/cashmere or with silk.

Well the only reversible belt I've had like that it was also a to open, but it did. (I think I ripped a nail too). Bad thing was I could never get it tight enough again and subsequently the belt would come apart at that point. But it was a cheap emergency belt I had to pickup while out of town.
Prob like this Otherwise snap a shot of the backside of the buckle, the link provided doesn't' show any details. (Other then that it's a nice belt)

If anybody has annyyyy leather-dying or treating techniques or tips, or critique of my belt, that would be really appreciated. Its a great project that Im having a lot of fun with. This antiquing thread probably has some good info on dyeing the leather.
