These are just a pair of cheap asos super skinny jeans I'm making do with at the moment. Don't have a tape but I'd guess they are 13.5-14. I don't mind this tight because the shaft on most of my boots are very fitted. That, in conjunction with the stacks mellows out the restricted apperance a bit. My SL jeans I usually wear are 14-15cm. 14 is my fave. Anyway with better quality jeans (I've found), due to their thickness and or drape the denim in question has, I've found they still tend to give a good stack/look skinny.What size leg opening are your jeans? I'm trying to get that similar look where the jeans are tight and grip the boot (at least it looks like it's holding on) without it being too tight.
As I mentioned previously, googling the stylecode at the time would have indicated to you that this is a 20/21SS belt. Actually having just tried that now I can see google only provides a link to this thread. Personally, I would not be satisfied with the belt you have, and you've just added fuel to the fire in my mind by pointing out it lacks the aged look of the original. Wearing a western belt full stop for me is "out there" due to its tendency to look cosplay - Hedi's hit the nail on the head as has been exemplified in the picture RedVelvetWounds posted above. So, nice to see Vacarello wipe out the finesse the original one hadSo I ended up biting the bullet on this belt. I figured if it doesn't fit or I don't like it I can resell it. I'll admit, as you point out, I'm not in love with the lack of black finishing on it. In fact I started to really second-guess myself that it might be fake, but getting it in-hand I don't think so.
For what it's worth though - I think I've worn mine maybe twice since purchasing. Don't think I'd sell though as there'll come one day I'll really want to wear it.
Here's a couple of pics I took in the morning, compared to the high shine 3 passant:
