    I have to say that i noticed too that Yorky has a rather strange taste in belts. Now each to his own anall that, but sometimes simple is best. Especially if you already wear a checked shirt.
    À la suedehead i tend to match the color of belt and shoes. Only plain leather belts, in an array of colors to match (black, brown, burgundy). I've got lighter woven belts for summer, in plain colors too.
    You can't always match (i.e. sand DB), but you can find a color that doesn't clash or stand out.

    Got a belt that matches the Dessies, I just fancied a bit of colour to give a contrast and minimise the "beigeness"

    Yeah I try to match belt and shoes a lot. Also got a load of coloured canvas D ring belts to match various colours in outfits, which I wear with linen strides in the summer, but as I don’t tuck polo shirts I find that attention to detail sometimes a bit misplaced as they’re rarely visible.

    I have two belts so don't really bother - it's more of a winter or summer, formal or casual decision grid for me

    Thought I'd post this for the belt police, I hope that it is up to your sartorial standards.

    I can't really see the detailing of this belt but at least with a plain color shirt it looks OK.

    Do you have a license for wearing shoes on your carpet ? :-D

    Is it that sunny inside ?
