Was looking at some belts on discount yesterday and wondered about these things. I found a few different brands, some of which make other things I've heard of, some not, but as we all know the different items a brand makes can range widely in quality. Johnston & Murphy: pretty nice suede belts, but will they hold up? Martin Dingman: looks nice, but hard to tell. At what price is it a bargain? Polo: some for MSRP $40, some for MSRP $140. Err.. what's the difference, really? Also, the $140 ones have no visible stitching, which worries me a bit. They are not one piece of leather, so they must be glued. Will they stay together a while? Anyway, just seeking some input here. I need to pick up a few belts as mine are all looking really shabby and/or "fashionable".
