For women, the killer accessory is the handbag; for men, it’s the belt. There’s no such thing as too many belts; every pair of shoes in your wardrobe should be teamed with at least one belt that matches or harmonizes. Nothing undermines the style of a man’s outfit faster than a belt that doesn’t match the shoes. As a basic rule, black shoes need a black belt; but after that, things get complicated. There are so many different shades of brown, from Chestnut and Cognac to Chocolate and beyond.
The same dilemma comes up with materials. Suede and smooth leather are worlds apart in accessory terms; hard-line fashion pros even coordinate their belt buckle and watchstrap. Quality leather shoes naturally demand an equally high-quality belt, particularly for business or formal wear. Crafted from premium cowhide, LLOYD Men’s Belts are long-lived and elegant companions.
A belt naturally needs to be the right length. If you don’t already know your belt length, it’s easy to measure; just use a tape measure to measure your waist around the belt loops of your best-fitting trousers. This length will be the length of your belt from the end of the buckle to the middle hole.
