It works well with jeans, but I do feel you have to downplay the rest of the outfit, so no other obvious labels/logos (Gucci, Prada, Fendi etc).


Good point. The stitching of the belt is same as the color of the side of the belt, which perhaps means that the 2 peices are glued. In any case, the feel and even smell is quality.
I note your comment.
I never wear anything with obvious labels as its not my general style which understated sophistication. This item is my ONLY real logo advertising (excluding barbor or ralp lauren small little tab/logos).

This is good advice for any outfit. Labels are like monograms - they are for you and your cleaner to see, nobody else.

Haha, +1!

Go balls deep and bling that shit!

I know a dude my age who has an Hermes belt and he pretty much owns it, so baller!

But then again we were arguing over if having the cash whether to go for a Lamborghini or an Aston Martin.

Actually I don't even knowwhy I'm bringing this up.

I was refering to the giant, overbold H buckle ones. Those examples below are actually very nice, I could see myself wearing the one in the last pic.

Really enjoying wearing my H belt. I like the slight understated but yet quite obvious loudness of the whole look it affects. The buckle usually is only very slightly visible is I am wearing a sweater/jeans combo. I have yet to wear it with a shirt/jeans combo which will make it less easy to be hidden. Only things is I am not sure if the orange side works well with my blue stonewash Levis 501s as I never really wear black belts with jeans. I am looking forward to summer when I can wear my white jeans with the orange side. What are the best colour/combos for the Orange/Black belt with gold H buckle?
