Same as with shoes: a little conditioner followed by some colored cream. I wouldn't use polish. A good belt should last many years. I have some my sister gave me in 1984 that I still wear regularly.

I'm wearing that very same belt right now...one of my favorite Ebay snags.

Funny the OP thought that belts go unnoticed. I thought it obvious that accessories are king these days.

To the OP it looks like you're on the right track with C&J. Having shopped around for belts recently, I have to say that I loved the leathers of some of the French belts (Hermes, LV, etc.), too, all of which you can easily find without the weird logos. A nice quality belt will look better over time.

Ben Silver's Crocket and Jones is expensive. Whether it's worth the price is a matter of opinion. I have the dark brown in a weekly rotation and the black one for special events.

The Brooks Brothers is less expensive and certainly acceptable. It's what I use to wear.

I get my belts from Equus Leather (http://www.equusleather.co.uk/index....-products.html) and the Worcestershire Leather Company (http://www.timhardy.com/belts.html). Alot of choices between the two and the belts last.

Ralph Lauren Purple Label Made in England.

FWIW there really is no "best" belt, just the one that "best" matches your shoes.

I wear an Hermes 'H' belt. What is so awful about them?

Sure you can't buy real ones at a bargain price. You hating on those who can buy it?

I would recommend you buy a belt from a leather accessories brand, rather than a shoe brand. Unless you like vanilla.

Both stores recondition them for free for the life of the belt as well (redye and replace snaps), I have a number of buckles (some classic, some western, some trendy) that I can interchange on the five straps I have (brown leather, black leather, brown gator, black gator, and tan elephant).

They're not as inexpensive as BB but a much better deal.

I live about a mile from Maidas, they share space with a 'Shoe Hospital' that also sells Aldens. A great selection of belts and good service, but as you say, not cheap!
