How To Choose Belts

Belts are a wardrobe staple, and very versatile, they can be used as a practical item, for keeping your jeans held up, or as an accessory where it has more aesthetic qualities, for example, making your outfit more interesting or adding detail.

Belts are typically made of leather or a heavy fabric and worn around the waist. Belts have been around since the middle ages. In more recent time, circa 1900s, belts were part of an uniform, particularly among officers. Belts made the transition into mainstream fashion in the 1920s, as trousers waists fell lower. Nowadays it is common for men to wear a belt with their trousers, and for women to wear a belt as a fashion accessory, either around their hips or waist, even under the bust to give themselves an hourglass figure.

Our range of men’s belts are designed for any purpose, either to wear with your work trousers or jeans for a more causal look. Browse our range here.
