The shade of suede is great. I really like the relaxed fit on that guy too

That's one of the only suede jackets I've seen that's ever made me wish I had a suede jacket. I love the shape and the details.

I really like this belt, but not sure if it’s too “pretty” for my aesthetic

Nothing is too pretty, fuck that. Nobody will notice but you anyway.
Seriously, even if you have a super-defined aesthetic, accessories is the one thing you can fuck around with and be a bit playful about.
Not advocating fun socks to be clear.

You don’t think it’s pretty? I think it is. Anyway, I bought it. Fuck it, I’m too old to try boring things.
I mean, yeah it's *pretty* I guess, just wasn't sure what you meant by too pretty.

Yeah it's a great belt who cares just wear it.

I think I meant is it too lively and ornate for my general aesthetic which tends toward solid colors but you’re right, it’s a really dope belt I’m gonna just wear it

Sounds boring. Glad you're not being boring.

I'd say if you like something, regardless of how much it fits in with what you currently have, then that is your "aesthetic" and you should pursue it. There's no fun in not being able to be wear what you want because you've bought too deep into a particular way of dressing. I found myself in that rut and it took a while to escape, almost like the awkward phase of growing your hair out. I'm much happier now that I have a versatile wardrobe and can wear whatever I feel like. Inevitably, it won't be for everyone so you'll get some feedback online saying you should revert back to "such and such prescribed style", but just gotta stick with what brings you joy. #MarieKondo
