Hi, was looking at picking up 2 belts (one black and one brown). Both Allen Edmonds crocodile print belts. Pictures below. Was wondering if these are suitable for formal dress wear with a suit on an interview, etc, or on really for the more laid back settings. Thanks

I think it's cheesy, buy the real deal if you can swing it or buy a nice calf skin belt.

+1. Those look too patent-ish, making them seem cheap.

Then don't get an exotic skin belt--or even worse, a fake exotic skin belt. Just get plain calf. These look like they came out of a Stacy Adams catalogue.

You are not going to like the way you look with those on--I guarantee it.
