Thoughts on Fashion Belts? (Ferragamo, Gucci, LV, etc.)
I've never seen anyone wearing Gucci or LV belts (or even Hermes) but I constantly see Ferragamo belts. So what are your thoughts on this?
Is Ferragamo ok but Gucci and LV not?
What Kind of Belt Should I Buy for Work?
Generally, our users feel that LV, Gucci, and Ferragamo belts are acceptable as long as they are not too outlandish. However, some of our users shared that you should not worry too much about the brand and just purchase a simple leather belt that looks classy.
Some of the more subtle LV/Gucci belts are okay. Personally, I wear a LV belt almost every day and looks just like every other belt in the office, aside from the slightly different pattern. the epi leather belts are nice, and def not flashy.
I saw some dude with a gamo belt on, the one with the distinctive buckles. I laughed. Wear normal stuff, nothing crazy. I think I get my belts from BB on sale or whatever.
Brown, Black and Cordovan. Silver buckle. Done.
When I have an important meeting I rock an understated black bvlgari calf leather belt with white gold buckle, looks great and I get plenty of compliments on it but you can't tell the brand unless you asked me. On regular workdays I use a reversible no-name black/brown leather belt with stainless steel buckle, color to match the shoes.
Most Analysts in my office wear either Ferragamo or Gucci belts to match their shoes.
Just go to Nordstrom or J. Crew or Macy's or Neiman Marcus or Polo or Marshall's or TJ Maxx and buy a decent looking leather belt. They even make reversible ones so you can get brown and black all in one. No one cares what brand it is.
