Bought a pair the Walnut Strands and am looking for a reasonably priced belt to got with them. I'd be wearing these with dress pants as well as jeans and ideally have one belt that would work for both. 1" seems too small (lgc dress belts generally this size) and 1.5" a bit big (ae belts).
I'm still looking at Leather Goods Connection as an option...will their "work belt" (1.25") be suitable and if so, would you go with tan or medium brown as best match for the Strands? I've bought a darker bridle belt from there and it is of high quality. Also, any other options? I've looked at J&M also and that might also work.
Nordstrom has the AE basic wide belt in Walnut for $62 and the Manistee Belt (Walnut) for $79. I would start there.
