    Having recently lost some weight I found that one of my favourite belts no longer fit me as snugly as I would have liked.
    I took it to a cobbler yesterday, to have a couple of holes added but unfortunately the cobbler overlapped two holes, thereby ruining the belt.

    The manager kindly said that he would cover the cost of a replacement, all I have to do is buy a similar belt and bring in the receipt.

    The problem I have is that the store where I bought the belt is no longer in business and the maker, Longhi, has since been acquired by Zegna. Whilst Zegna belts are certainly decent, the thickness of the leather and level of finishing on the Longhi seems to be much higher.

    Does anybody know where I can buy a Longhi belt or find an alternative of a similar price/ quality level?

    Many thanks for your help!
