Belt is a very functional accessory, since men have belts in single digit numbers [for most men], it is imperative to have good belts.
So, what makes a Belt amazing?
Three things are important in belts (1) the quality of leather and the way leather-layers have been combined (2) the buckle which is what people notice before anything else (3) edge & belt finish quality – how leather edges have been finished
Thicker leathers are needed for belts; two leathers are combined by either pasting or stitching them together or a single layer of thick leather works well. Since leathers go through pressure around the buckle area – the leathers closer to natural state are better than the rest. Leather of-course has lot more life than PU or faux-leather options. A good leather belt can last for 3 to 5 years even if used daily.
In order to attain the desired thickness, multiple layers are pasted. The quality of pasting becomes very important, as the risk of edges opening is high. Usually leather is grinded with some kind of sandpaper and even layer of adhesive is applied on them to paste them together. In casual belts stitching on the edges does add life to the belts but this also needs consistent stitch per inch for better life as well as finish.
In last 10 years lot of patterned special finish leathers are used in formal belts. These distinct patterns are done on top of leather via sophisticated techniques. These patterns are usually more visible in some of the premium brands. This texture play is now so evolved that Brands like Vidal Bosch have patents over some of these patterns.
This is the most visible part of a belt; a smooth finish somewhat scratch resistant buckle is what makes a belt stand out especially for formal belts. Casual belt buckles can be in even rough finish and often distinct shapes elevate the belt to a whole new level. A super smooth finish formal belt buckle needs a very high-quality finish which means production processes which are usually expensive which is why one rarely find a good quality buckle in cheaper belts.
A casual belt can have a raw edge but formal belts definitely need to have smooth edges. This is somewhat complicated process – the edges are rubbed; cleaned and then multiple coats of colors are used to give it a smooth edge finish in certain colors. This craftsmanship is clearly visible in the belts and differentiates an average belt with somewhat evolved ones. Even in casual belts – the edges need to be smooth, which needs rubbing and clear cuts.
