Mont Blanc belts are my preference.

ABP Paris does do belts. I recently took delivery of a shagreen travel frame from them since the person making them for Aubercy went out of business, and the Aubercy shagreen frame was much nicer both in quality of leather and of make. Someone told me Duret makes most of Aubercy's non-shoe/glove leathergoods, but apparently shagreen is handled by someone else. Correction: was.

Still, most of the other ABP stuff I've seen looks pretty good.

I was happy with my Edward Green belts, although they've somehow tripled in price the last few years. Hermes is nice... Anthony Delos will do bespoke belts, with the antiquing you wish for... I like my RJ patent leather belt as well and Longhi makes a good belt too.
What is so wretched about a five star white logo discreetly placed? Have you ever seen Louis Viuton of gucci's overly adorned items, or Dolce's, theirs is quite subtle by comparison. They are owned by the Richemont group by the way that also own lv, Cartier as well as a few other high quality labels. Their quality is superb and made in Italy. I have had a mont blanc belt for over three years now and the stitching as well as the eye holes are nearly pristine today as when first purchased.

I am ruined---getting a black one and he is making a sting ray band for my Panerai. Sending him one of my spares along with some hardware as soon as my wife brings it home for a pattern.

Have spoken with John several times and he is very customer oriented. Anyone else have any of his stuff???

Anyone else have experience with woodwardboots.com's products or was this spam?

SPAM my AZZ I like the good stuff and this is it. The belt was bought to go with my 3 pair of Whiskey Alden’s and because of the texture of the skin there is light as well as dark so it will even go with my Cigar Shells wearing certain pant and shirt combinations. Cannot believe Someone here does not have any of his products.

Checking in on this thread...it's been awhile but in the meantime I found the ultimate knock around belt. It's from the place that makes the great Moleskine covers. I rate this place AAA. They make the belt for explorers. It will last for decades and just get better looking. Their main thing is making leather cases for tools and such. I haven't checked lately but it was less than $100. when I got it. http://www.gfellercasemakers.com/

So which do you have the Classic or the Field Belt? Also do they have snaps or rivets.

Chicago screws. I didn't know they used snaps. I might have asked for the screws. I looked it up. It's the Classic. Gorgeous.

how do you guys compare Hermes belt with Stefano Ricci belt?
post #131 of 162
Shocked no one has mentioned Paul Stuart. Year in, year out, their belts are most durable and attractive.

How about this brand? Leatherman Ltd has good reputation in US trad belts, but AJ.. what? http://elizab.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?S..._Code=aj-belts
