Belts’ different kinds and categories

Belts’ different kinds and categories

Dress Belts

Dress belts will typically be made with fine-grain leather, both on the top and underside. They should not exceed 1.5 inches in width, or it becomes a casual belt (which I’ll cover below).

The end should be long enough to finish through the first loop of your trousers only.

The quality of the leather is the one common factor: Calfskin is the most common material used for such belts, and a good one will have soft, supple leather.

Though, some bolder variations can come in lizard skin or crocodile leather.

The wider the belt, the more casual it is. Take care not to go beneath 1.5 inches though, as you’d be hitting female territory.

Casual Belts

Like I said above, casual belts are usually about 1.5-2 inches wide. A casual men’s belt can utilize the same colors and leather as its formal cousin, but it can come in many more styles.

Reversible Belts

These belts come with a twisting buckle, allowing you some versatility in your wardrobe. All you have to do is pull the buckle up and twist, and voilà – you have a second belt.

Reversible belts are commonly found with black and brown sides.
