** EDIT: Nevermind, the tapered belts have holes for a standard buckle. I guess this variety is not the right thing to get, which I suspected anyway. Ordering up a couple of the standard 1" straps.
I've broken down and decided to get the Beltmaster belts afterall. They seem to get good reviews in terms of value for the $ and it seems like a good way to get started with the new buckle.
However, I need a bit of assistance from someone in the know...
Beltmaster offers 1" straps as well as 1 1/8" straps that taper to 1". I'd prefer the wider/tapered strap IF it will fit. The snap end of the strap is clearly tapered. This is obvious from the photos on the beltmaster site. I can't, however, tell if the other end of the strap is also tapered.
Anyone know if the tapered strap will work on a traditional 1" buckle? Mine is one of the older ones from Brooks Brothers with the boxed back structure like the Tiffany buckles (rather than the lighter duty wing style that is currently sold by BB).
Here are the links to the straps that I am talking about:
