I have a platinum selling album, a multitude of venereal diseases, a blow addiction and multiple stints in rehab. Am I the exception?

Thanks for the heads up, I'll check that site out.

Depends on your hairstyle. Pics needed.

The jeanshop belts are great for what you want. The leather is thick, but not super thick like the Kicking Mule belts, and very supple, especially after a wash. You probably want the brown, and then, seriously, wash it yourself. It's the easiest thing in the world, and with high quality leather, the results are terrific. Turn your tap on to the highest temperature, and soak the belt in it for 5 minutes or so. Take out, wring out the leather, and then pull to get it back to it's original length, flatten out the leather with your hands, and let it dry for a day or two in a cool, dry, place. I did this with a navy belt that was just a bit too dark, and it took out just enough dye, and the color became a little less uniform, and the leather looks fantastic contrasted with the brass buckle. I've actually gotten tons of compliments, and more than one offer to buy it. Not for sale.
Thanks for the link! Been looking for a nice belt with a full circumference buckle and I like the 45rpm in the brown variations. I'll admit I like the light brown a bit better, but I think the dark brown would be more versatile. I hate black casual belts and I could see the dark brown working well with my washed black Butteros and my black cherry GT's, as well as my brown F&B's. Any idea when they might be re-stocking?

I'm not surprised, I picked one up a couple of months ago and it is very good quality belt. Only thing I did not like about it was that it was almost pink when I got it. I placed it near a window for a few days and it tanned to a very nice color.

Can you wear this belt with a pair of dress trousers and button down or will it look odd since it is distressed?

can anyone recommend a ring belt or braided leather belt

This thread has gotten me thinking that I need a new belt for myself as well. I've got two Standard belts (1.5" width) in natural and black. I need a narrower belt for my pants, and probably go with Tanner as well. I'd ideally want both black and brown, but if you could only have one color, which would you go with? mahogany also looks really nice.
