How should one match a belt? Do you coordinate the colour of the belt with your trousers or shoes?

What are some good belts that go with a pair of brown Faconnable loafers?

I dont think that the majority of people here focus on buying specific brand names of belts. I found a great one that matched my shoes at Macy's. But you could just wear the shoes to TJ Maxx and find one that suits you.

Coordinate the color of your belt with that of your shoes. Ideally you should have a couple shades of contrast between the color of your shoes and that of your trousers.

Just find a belt in the same shade as your shoes.

The only time I bother matching my belt is when I'm wearing black shoes, which is rare.

The rest of the time I just grab whichever one hasn't been worn for the longest time.

Depends how casual you are. I sometimes don't match my belts to my shoes when I am wearing jeans for example.

I am partial to Galco belts. www.usgalco.com

1 1/4" CSB4 in black along with the 1 1/2" SB2 in black and tan for me.

The SB2 may be a bit too much belt for a lot of people but if it can support a gun, it'll support a blackberry that much better, let alone your pants.
