It's not like you "need" belts. It's more like, they look awesome. I'm sorry you hate awesomeness.

What. Nada has been one of the most consistent players in SC2. I don't even think he's been to the up/down matches since Code S started. July has always been a coin flip. He went from winning an OSL to being knocked out prelims all the time because of his aggressive style.

Also SC2 is dying in Korea. Money is not moving to it and fans are not graduating from BW to SC2. A bunch of contracts for pro teams have already expired with both Oz and MBC's team disbanding and there hasn't been a mass exodus to SC2 because of it. If you look at the crowds of GSL they are becoming smaller and smaller, not growing.

Dude, Boxer is really fucking sloppy. APM doesn't even matter that much in SC2, in BW it did because it was all about being able to control your unites quicker and overall better than others. SC2 did away with a lot of the stuff that required high APM in BW. He is able to consistently lose games where he takes a great lead in the beginning due to simple mistakes (missing timings, not punishing his opponents, pushing too far). I am talking sloppy strictly relative to other pros; if you look at where Boxer was in BW and how he played vs. now, sloppy is the only way to describe it. Look at Nestea (also old), DRG, MC, etc. Their play is noticeably crisper and refined.

Nada is consistent, I'll give him that. He hasn't really done anything impressive, though. That's my point about old school BW players in SC2: they never really make it anywhere. They do cool things once in a while, but overall tournaments are dominated by lesser known BW players or just straight up newer people. I think that's a major reason why SC2 isn't doing well in Korea, too. There is just no reason for the popular players to switch over, and if you watched BW back in the day, would you believe that Zergbong is now considered the best player in the world?

MA + for washed black
Julius for super pitch black

Damir Doma has made some pretty cool belts, as has Ann Demeulemeester. CCP has some good models, but imo, his stuff can be more hit or miss.

Of course, if you want stuff that is more ornate, Ugo Cacciatoire (sp?) does a good job. Personally, I like Dries van Noten and Margiela for everyday wear, but neither probably have too much in your style. None of these are particularly inexpensive, but I think that belts are worth the money. Even the most expensive belt is $800 or so (barring some models by Hermes) and for good leather, finishing, and interesting detail, there is no other accessory that really can carry you everywhere. You can wear them in the summer, winter, in 100 or -30 degree weather, and it doesn't make a difference, If you are wearing black, they are not even seasonal.

I mean, really. There are so many different types of leather and textiles, and so many different widths, and so many different treatments, styles, etc... Honestly, I think that you need about 6 belts, minimum, to hit all the notes.

I don't know...I just always end up spending my money on other items. Scarcity is a bitch. Out of curiosity, what do you think are the six essential belts?

Love the whiskey color. It's real leather and made in Italy.

I gotta ask - do you always tuck your shirt in? I really don't at this point, so I never wear belts (unless I'm wearing a suit or something, obviously, in which case I both tuck and wear a belt). I try to size my jeans so they'll stay up without one. If I did wear a belt, it wouldn't serve a function, and it would only be visible inasmuch as it would create an unsightly bulge at my waistline.

belt is less about being visible, but more as a means to accessorize, even if you nv tuck your shirt in.
instead of getting thick leather cowhide tanner unlucky, you can get those paper thin $5 h&m "leather" belt.

I guess I don't understand how it's accessorizing if it's not visible. I wouldn't consider underwear to be accessorizing, for example.
