Greg if I let out the waist on the garment dyed Rota's will there be a variation in color? I've got the Khaki's so those may have more leeway than red or green perhaps.

I think answer is yes - @DLJr did this iirc

Yes - it will show.   Letting out trousers seat/waist on cotton is already a bit tricky.  Taking in is not issue

Yeah. If you are between sizes buy big and take in even if you are taking in much more than you are letting out. The difference in color shows a lot, even on the sand pair I had purchased. The waist was not a big deal for me, but the seat was the deal breaker.

That's good advise. "Needs good ironing" implied the wrong picture. There isn't any bad wrinkling just the revers side with the buttons is more of a 3-1 roll at the moment. Applied some clips to hold and settle it in correct place for a while but the wrong crease will need to be ironed out (very carefully).

i received a very generous gift of a farnese tubo belt in honor of the birth of my new child, and it is absolutely amazing. i mean, obviously it looks amazing, but beyond that its really really comfortable. i never would have expected it, but its true!

thanks very much to the kind and generous gents who sent me this fantastic gift !

That's a lovely gift and indeed very generous. I like the tubo belt I have, and your description is spot on: comfortable and nicely constructed. I think the style really suits suede since it plays to the leathers inherent softness. I'm keeping my eye on the medium brown suede version. Seems like a really great summer belt.

The tubo suede belts are very nice and look great in person.  I ordered the gray, but ended up returning it.  I found it very annoying to put on and off because there is too much friction between the seude and your pants. Others may not mind this, but it was something that I knew would annoy me.  I exchanged for the blue elastic belt and am very happy with it.  

 

I am considering the tubo calf.

The soft calf look like it suits the style just as well as the suede.

This one looks really nice:




I hear what you are saying about the friction, but it hasn't caused me any trouble personally.
post #8053 of 16761

Yes, very cool belts.  I am sure the friction won't bother most people.

What's the width of the Tubo belts? I've been looking for a suede belt on the thinner side, and bit dressier looking … no stitching. The Tubo's look really nice!

3.5cm according to the ones on NMWA that have the measurements. I think it's a good width. The combination of the construction and buckle, the suede, and the width put the tubo belt between casual and dress for me, which I like about it.
