    Any suggestions as to where I can go to find a thin black dress belt? I have one that is ideal, but it is starting to show its age. This belt is under 1 inch in width, about 7/8s of an inch. Looking for something similar.

    I've looked in department stores, mens stores and others and have not been able to find somthing this thin. It seems that all men's dress belts come in 1.5 inches in width. The thin ones I've found are those trashy ones with studs & weird buckles. Thanks.

    Dior Homme and other designer brands make a thinner belt.

    I, too, prefer a thinner belt.

    I got one from Zara. You can buy one a cobbler can cut it to width and put your old belt buckle on it.

    Both RLPL and BB sell 1" belt straps to be used with plaque buckles.

    Have you had this done? It sounds like a miracle to me.

    Doesnt seem possible. assuming the surgery goes well and somehow the belt doesnt split lengthwise on the seem, the buckle will look ridiculous as its made for the larger belt.

    Did you mean having a cobbler cut it down to your waist size?

    We sell a calfskin belt made in Italy at 1 1/8 to 1 1/4". You can see it on our website, search for 174. That is the narrowest we get.
