    Has anyone got a Hermes 'H' belt? What are thoughts on SF about them .. is it a classic piece or a bit 'eurotrash'?

    Prices are ridiculous though .. £540 ?! [​IMG]Seems a bit of a rip-off?

    They are in every way the most base method of displaying wealth.

    The leather used is amazing, but the leather costs about $150. The Golden H? $550, just so that people know you're the kind of guy to spend $550 on a belt.

    Don't do it, people will either think you're a gullible fool who got conned or a tool who wants people to think he's loaded.

    nice belts, especially if you're the flashy type.

    Hermes "H" belts are quite popular here. But they're not 500 quid ones though...more like 5 quid.

    You should get one and just tell people the H stands for heterosexual.

    quality wise, they're probably the best I've seen and owned. the big H buckle is exclusively the province of douchebags, so I think you should just avoid those. Hermes does make different, more tasteful buckles that are good options. my Hermes belt is a "normal" looking buckle but I do love the craftsmanship (I believe the material is palladium)

    The H belts are overpriced in an effort to keep the status or allure of owning one high. I love the leather, the fact they are reversible, and even some of the buckles are cool. But I don't really find them appropriate in most settings....too showy.
