Need second opinions on this belt

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
It's bordering on streetwear forum material, as I'm considering buying it for wearing with weekend jeans/blazer/double-cuffed shirt get-ups. (And no, not with matching Guccis):

EEEwwwwwww. That should only go with matching Gucci's. I have got a pair of loafers that have that exact same buckle on the pair of shoes.Ow.

I thought the glint of chrome bits might best be restricted to one place on the person?

Well, a slight hint of S&M could be good, no?

Wouldn't this be difficult to wear with jeans as the top button will always be in the way of the horsebit?

Please lucky don't buy it, pretty please.

Nope.

I guess it's okay if you are in to Bondage & Discipline.

Hermes offers a similar horse bit buckle belt, for ladies.

That is an awfully thin belt. Are you sure it isn't meant for the fairer sex?

Edit: IIRC the width is 1 1/2".

I can't get the link or that site in general to open now, so they've lost my business, at least for the time being.

I thought the belt could work well as a vaguely designer-y belt without any visible branding, which I generally dislike, although with a very few exceptions. You know, along the lines of a Gucci monogramme belt-buckle or the Hermès "H" belt, but without the annoying instant brand recognition.

Oh well, I'll listen to good advice, and I thank you for it, but does any of you know of a belt that would work well with jeans and a shirt and blazer/corduroy jacket to the same effect as the brand ones, but without the visible branding? I know this is a paradx, but still...I suppose what I really want is a nice, big, expensive-looking and slightly flash belt-buckle, but not branded. Thanks to you, I'm now considering a rectangular sterling silver one, possibly engine-turned - didn't RL make one a few years ago that just had English hallmarks across the middle, and nothing else?

Recently I've been wearing these croc belts (with sterling silver rings) with jeans.





But, I have worn any of these(especially the Western buckles) with jeans as well.

Those are damned nice...the rectangular buckles are the type I was thinking about.

Do they have a particular name? I seem to remember them being referred to as Trad, especially if they have engraved initials. And if anyone can remember who made the sterling hallmarked ones, that would make my day

Edit: Or there's always this buckle:

They are usually referred to as slide buckles. I would describe them as more classic than Trad.

This hallmarked buckle is by Tiffany. I recall Polo offering something similar in past seasons.

That's perfect. Thank you, and thank you, again. I'll be over at the Tiffany's site, excuse me.
