    Make sure it matches your BR shoes.

    of all accessories, i find belts the least of my concern. all my dress belts have that simple square buckle design, and i just make sure they match my shoes. for a casual get-up, i just opt to wear canvas army-type belts in whatever color i feel like wearing. if you want, you could just buy buckles that scream some attention if you're going to wear a more casual attire. an example would be a cbgb buckle (which closed its doors last sunday, btw) [​IMG]

    Wow I'm surprised that there isn't many replies in this thread. I guess belts are the least of your concerns?

    I would really recommend the search function. There has been one too many threads on these.

    Most men don't pay any attention to their belts.
    A good belt starts at about $150.
    Anything below that is pretty much all the same.
    I've seem lots of nice belts in the 40-50 dollar range at dept stores.
    A dress belt depends on your style.
    What's your style?

    I have bought two Pal Zileri dress belts this year. Retail price was EUR 60 and EUR 90, respectively (in USD, about 30% more), and I liked the feel of the leather (I am no expert, though). They both have nice brown colours (one drifting towards yellow). Of course, I bought them to match corresponding shoes. I have the feeling that Pal Zileri dress belts have a good quality/price ratio.
