    What kind of belt does you all generally wear with jeans and black Chucks or navy slip-ons. A brown leather belt always seems a little off to me, but black leather looks even worse. A canvas belt works for both but I don't want to be restricted to canvas whenever I wear my Chucks (which is a lot). Thanks for your comments.

    Rule of thumb: belt should always match the color of your shoes, not necessarily the same material. Black leather plus black Chucks looks completely fine to me. In fact it is my common weekend wear, although I additionally own a pair of leather black chucks.

    no.

    Maybe if you're wearing a suit. Not if you're wearing a t-shirt and sneakers.

    I think a black leather belt (especially a studded one) looks good with jeans and black Chucks, but that doesn't help you if you don't like the look.

    Yeah, I generally don't like belts with too much detail and a plain black belt looks a little too dressed up to go with beat up Chucks, at least for me. I am coming around to the brown leather belt look but was just wondering what everyone else thought of it.

    I wear my old brown leather belt or beige web belt with all my casual sneakers, including chucks.

    I like casual cotton/fabric d-ring belts with jeans/sneakers.

    or a nice thick brown suede/distressed belt.

    How about a dirty shade of cream leather or suede?

    Or a black leather belt with some sort of tooled design?

    Do you feel you have to match belt/shoe colors? Also, should the belt be a washed or is a new/dark dye ok? I would think either a white or black (probably washed?) canvas belt would work. In the past, I've always worn a black leather belt with my black chucks. I'm thinking of buying olive and khaki canvas belts also, because I think they look cool, but obviously I don't have olive or khaki colored shoes, so I want to know if the belt has to match the shoes. Adamm PS: Where is the best place to find canvas belts anyway?
    I like casual cotton/fabric d-ring belts with jeans/sneakers.
