    Can anyone point me in a direction where I can find a good selection of really high quality dress belts that are narrower than what seems the be the 35MM standard width.

    I'm looking for something around 3CM or 1" to 1.125" that seem to be elusive.

    I'm not looking for anything fancy - just a straightforward classic dress belt in high quality leather, a simple buckle, and a great finish - especially in browns.

    I've looked at Carmina, Anderson's from The Armoury, Meermin, Magnanni, Scarpe Di Bianco, and others - only to find nothing in a narrower width than 35MM.

    Thanks!

    1.25" is the standard width of a dress belt. 1-1.125" is a fashion belt, so you'll have to go with more modern minded makers.

    Does it have to be a stitched belt? If not, Maximum Henry has them: http://maximumhenry.com/collections/belts/products/aviator-belt

    Otherwise, try Barneys: http://www.barneys.com/barneys-new-...&prefv1=isPublic&pageviewchange=true&start=53

    Felisi also makes such belts:
