Best Belt? - Page 3
Since I'm looking to upgrade at least 4 belts - black, cordovan, dark brown, and chestnut - at the premium level of $150+ per, we're talking $600+ which is -killing- me. I'm convinced from other threads that they are worth it, but that's a lot of coin for ... belts.
So I'm mentally stuck on the Torino price point (more like $100 per) but still dreaming of the better ones.
Torino belts are great value. I have picked up a few.
They just emailed me a coupon code for 20% off.
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.
For what it's worth,
I haven't seen Zegna mentioned yet, but the best belt I have is an amazing reversible tan and black Ermenegildo Zegna belt I got in Venice. Brooks brothers belts have taken a step down in quality - their leather is much worse somehow, at least for their $90 dress belt I bought >4 years ago. I have an older BB belt from >6 years ago that is still going strong, although some of the plating has come off the buckle.
The Zegna belt's leather puts the brooks and a few of my other belts to shame. Although I don't like the branding on the buckle.. "Ermenegildo Zegna" is embossed sideways on it.
