    A Dunhill cowhide belt is around 190 euros.

    In you opinion, what is the part of the buckle in the price?

    If it is a good, gold-filled Italian buckle, then:

    20% buckle
    10% leather
    70% designer name

    It depends. Sterling silver buckles in USA tend to cost from $100 to $300. "Designer" buckles go from $500 to $1000+. A brass buckle wouldn't cost much except for the expensive name on it like "Dunhill." For example: http://www.luxuryhaven.com/product_i...roducts_id=726

    I am talking about palladium plated buckle.

    Do you thing that 20 euros is a good price for the buckle?

    Let's say I'd like to get a new belt without paying the 70% for the designer, who makes nice quality *no name* belts?

    Thanks
