    Anyone have any luck finding a belt (relatively inexpensive) to match these?

    I am dying to wear them, but the suit I want to wear them with is not a "braces" suit, and requires a belt. (Solid Navy)

    Also thinking about my cream cotton CT when it gets back from the shop, but alas, same problem there.

    I think I have an AE belt at home that matches them well, obtained at a discount from STP. That's a crappy, unclear sentence. I know I have the belt but am not entirely certain it's an AE. I'll check tonight.

    i have acquired several belts in different colors from Nordstrom Rack:
    chestnut to match my AE Colton, burgundy for my burgundy shoes, different shades of brown, etc. all the belts are of above decent quality and at a good discounted price. all of them are either 19.97 or 25 dollars each.

    here are my dress belts, i have 8 in total:

    flash in camera makes the color a little off.
    from bottom left and clockwise:
    burgundy by martin dingman, brown by johnston murphy, brown exotic by unknown, dark brown reversible by calvin klein, chestnut by unknown, pebble black by barneys outlet, black by kenneth cole, and black by alfani

    all of them from either nordstrom rack, cabazon outlets, or macys clearance sales. except for the johnston murphy, i got that one full price at 45 dollars from johnston murphy store. of course, before i joined andy.
    but that is one of my two favorite belts though.

    CT has a belt in Cognac, looks like a good match, but it is sold out online.
