    I've started wearing a belt with my jeans everyday and the belt has gotten all warped and ruined. It's become bent in the middle, here's a visual aid: [​IMG]

    I don't know what's up. Am I wearing it wrong? Am I not wearing the right size? I usually wear my jeans a little below the waist. I'm not sure what size the belt is, but I wear size 36 jeans and notch it on the fourth notch.

    This all depends how tight you are doing up your belt. If you over tighten it so the jeans 'pull in' it will cause it to creace. Hope this helps.

    On another note, that's kind of a dressy belt for jeans wear, no?

    It just looks like you need to buy a narrower belt.

    Overtightened but why is the 'bend' as you describe it a problem?

    Bends form naturally in belts- It just has to do with the shape of your hips. The crease is a bit unusual, but it's not ruined. Leather is tough stuff, it's fine physically and not many will notice, much less care.
