I bought these two belts for my sons. They each are very different, but both are great quality. I was very surprised how nice they were, especially considering the price. They have held up so far with being worn almost every day and I would definitely recommend these to anyone who wanted a nice, quality belt. I would buy these again, without hesitation, and the shipping wasn't all that bad either.
The belt is very well made and attractive. However, I found that it runs a little smaller than the size shown.
I've owned this belt for several years, and I can tell you it's 99% not leather. Leather is more comfortable to wear because it has a little give to it, but that also means it will stretch out over time. Plastic belts have no give, and you can feel the resistance as you push the end through the buckle to fasten it, as well as generally when wearing it. (you're wearing a plastic strap, after all.) The 'leather' on this is a fabric backed material which is glued to both the outside and inward faces of the belt, though the inward layer is about half as thick as the outside. I will say, it's held up for a long time, which makes it worth the $4 I paid for it on sale. The downside is that as it's worn, the leather-like lamination has cracked and flaked at stretch points, especially in vertilcal bars at each hole where the buckle latches through it. Given some fat/thin days, three of the holes have these crack lines through them, where the leather look has come off and the cloth backing (white) shows through. Also, the glue has given up, so the laminate has peeled from top and bottom edges - like shelf paper in the cupboard, or wallpaper peeling back where the adhesive has dried up. Given the years of use I've had and the low price, it's hard to complain, but they should not describe it as leather given how differently leather behaves.
I bought this belt for my boyfriend. A another review suggested going up by two sizes. I thunk it depends. I ordered one size up and it fit fine. But yes the sizing is off go up a size or two.
