Who makes the best belts? - Page 4

post #46 of 80
If they still have it in stock, buy the swedish army belt from inventory, very happy with mine!

My Martin dingmans have not really held up well. My best belt right now is an Hermes. I read the hate above but their workmanship really is second to none. Just buy a nondescript buckle like i did so you don't get labeled by others

Hey All, I apologize if this has been hashed already...I was reading through this forum, and researched a lot of these manufacturers that were mentioned...if nothing else, W. Kleinberg will be my choice, but I was wondering if anyone hear had heard of Saddleback Leather.  I am looking for a belt where I can change the buckle, one that I'll have for several years at least and that will look good during that time.  Any suggestions?

There is a saddleback leather thread on here. I do not have any of their belts, but I think they will probably be too casual for my use at least.

If you are looking for the option to swap buckles, you may also want to check out Tanner Goods. They also have an official thread on here.

I bought my black quick release belt from http://www.worcestershireleathercompany.com/ and I am extremely happy with it.  Thick leather, and solid brass buckle.  The difference between a hand made belt and store (even some brand name belt) is noticeable.  I may buy my next belt from Equus Leather for comparison and their price point is more attractive.

Nice option for quality MTM-belts (in German, but should be easy enough with help of online translator). Ordered one so far and am very happy with it.

No idea who makes the best - if the best can actually be defined.

I have a few C&J made belts, that seem to meet almost any belt need I have (note - I wear braces with all bar one of my suits, and a fair number of my trousers have side adjusters rather than loops). I am interested that EG sell belts, and assume they must be a belt version of their shoes, but feel no need to trade up from C&J, who appear to produce a well made product from good materials in a suitably unostentatious style.

I really can't imagine that I would want anyone to notice my belt, frankly.

Apologies for double post, due to clicky issues.

Can second this. I have two C&J belts too and I am very happy with them too.

I recently came across a belt maker coincidentally called the Belt Makers : http://www.thebeltmakers.com/index.html . The belts are a bit expensive, but look great. I was about to order a few different shades of brown till I read the notice that each belt could take up to 28 day to product and send out.

Do you have any alternate recommendations?
