I have a reversible Gucci belt that has lasted me for years. Aside from scuffs on the buckle it's still in great shape. To reverse the belt, the buckle spins right before the clasp that connects it to the leather. I also have a Ferragamo reversible belt that has left me very disappointed. Unlike the Gucci belt, in order to reverse the Ferragamo one, I must unclasp the buckle from the leather, switch it, and re-clasp. Unfortunately, this damages the belt, and it's chewed the leather so much that i had to shorten it to get a good hold. Also, the plasticy black trim around the edge of the belt peeled within a week of owning it. I would love to own an Hermes belt, but I haven't been able to justify the price. Is it really as good as I hear? They have a brown/blue one that I think would be a lot of fun.
