    Would this work with a monochrome grosgrain band - with jeans? Sterling silver enamel over guillochÃ[​IMG] (engine-turned) pattern. Length is 7 cm (2,7 in). [​IMG]

    Looks like it would work wonderfully with jeans. Post some pictures.

    Didn't the pic work? It's really the only photo I have.

    Edit: Photo fixed, I hope.

    It's a ladies buckle(vintage), originally meant to be worn with a dress. That said, I don't think that it's substantial enough (too narrow) to work with jeans

    I think he meant show us a picture of the end product - attached to a belt, worn with jeans. The photo with your initial post works fine. Ladies' buckle or not, I like it.
    Oh, I see - and thanks, I like it too, mainly for the workmanship. It's really quite sturdy, although Tomasso is of course right about it being a ladies' buckle. (Around 1910, judging from the hallmarks. I didn't want to tell about it being a ladies' one - but it seems that that one's too obvious.) Haven't decided about buying it yet - but if it's that obviously a ladies' one, I'm having second thoughts. Might just look odd.

    Here's another one - I think this might not be any less feminine, but here goes (the silk belt is completely worn out and will have to be changed): [​IMG] Now picture a leather strap on this - too effeminate?

    I find the second one more effeminate than the first, I'm afraid.

    These would work well for wool trousers as well. A nice contrast against the dark colors.
