good eye. It's weird, unless there is some kind of detail/marking where I have to wear it "forwards", yea I always wear my belts backward. I didnt even know I was doing that until I got a belt that required it being worn forward, and I thought it was made backwards. Forward/backward...all I know is that the tongue goes towards my righthandside when belted. Is that "backward"?

Yup, when the tongue goes right, that's "backward"...unless you're wearing a belt with a double ring closure. What made me notice was that it looked like you were wearing the same belt in the last two pictures, and I was curious why you were wearing your belt normal in the first pic but backward in the second. Either way, it looks good IMO.

the belt in the first pic has a small "paul smith" engraving on the buckle so I wear it correct. But backwards is my norm.

Mmm... I used to alternate accidentally for the longest time. I think I did not consistently wear my belt facing leftward until I joined the army and had to wear the web belt with the national guard insignia on its buckle. Could not wear that upside down, I'd have ended up serving a few weeks extra
But does not look bad.

Same exact thing happened to me yesterday, when I got a new belt which had a design on the buckle. I thought that perhaps the buckle was 'backwards' on this particular belt, but the last few posts made me realize that I have always worn belts the wrong way.

Cool day here today, 70 degrees and dropping. - H&M long sleeve tee - Blue Cult (I know, I know...) faded black jeans. The jeans came in a fairly solid black color, and the fading is due mostly to actual wear. The denim quality is actually pretty good. They are also not as flared as they appear in the picture. - Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche black calfskin sleek balmorals, though I think my vintage 1960's brown ankle boots would probably look better and I may switch it up.

to quote Mr Homer Simpson, esq.: "HOLY GUACAMOLE!" Hell of a buckle there. I could not pull it off but it is fascinating. What is the background on this?

it belonged to my friends older brother. i would guess he wore it mid to late 70's while he was rocking out to kiss. he gave me a bunch of buckles to sell and i kept this one.

and thanks jason!

the artist has discontinued them but he might do a small run for my art gallery in the near future.
he might have a few left also.

you could try contacting him at www.deathattack.com if you want one
