Belt Buckle

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Yesterday I have chosen the leather and model for my first pair of bespoke shoes. I like to have a belt that matches the leather of the shoe, the leather is not the problem but I need to have some nice buckles. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you.

Sorry, FFW, I don't have any advice for you, but I find it strange that you didn't get any replies - because I've always heard (and I could be wrong) that men look at buckles when buying a belt. Is this true? Do any of you who are belt shopping bypass a belt, assuming you like the leather, if the buckle isn't what you'd prefer? In the meantime, FFW, you could try taking a look at this older thread: http://66.170.193.77/cgi-bin....;t=6638

Don't know if it's your cup of tea -- but you could always get a slide buckle from a place like Shoreline Engravers -- the old New England firm that one of the gents. on AAAC mentioned in a thread. A buckle like it may be seen on the Ralph Lauren site.

Tiffany & Co makes sterling buckles. Also if you desire logo, then that Hermes H. Also vintage ones could also work such as made by Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Boucheron, usually composed of solid gold or sterling. If you so desire, then Regency era buckles can also be had however one would require a fairly wide belt to wear those.

I have a tiffany sterling buckle. I honestly think that this is an accessory that is prefectly acceptable to have one for your life and not change it often. I am very happy with it, it is light, and it usually doesn't cause metal detectors to ring. It is very simple and classic looking.

do you have a picture of it? At the website they only have one buckle for sale? I like them as simple as possible.

Another question regarding to a belt. If I would have a buckle and a piece of leather. Who can make a belt? Is it difficult to make or can any shoemaker do this. The person who makes my shoes says he wont make me a belt. Strange but true. So is it worth al the trouble? Please tell me what you think

I'll see if I can post a pic later on in the week, but I think that tifanies has one simple belt buckle. since it ispretty narrow, I needed to have the belts made. there are stores that are, for want of a better word, belt stores. I have never had a realy problem finding them, they often sell a variety of non-label wallets, and cut belts to fit. That's where I have gotten belts for the buckle.
