This week's pick is a slim, brown, mock-croc belt by Pierre Cardin. It's versatility is what I like most because it blends in with a suit, chinos, linen trousers and those 120S pure wool trousers. It's not over-powering at all, and this can be attributed to its slim design.
It has minute detailing of the brand name on the buckle which is almost invisible from afar and this takes it away from being gaudy or showy. If you've only ever worn thick belts in excess of 2 inches then it's about time you tried something slimmer because as long as it's tight around the waist then you shouldn't have a problem with the belt looking ill-fitting in the trouser loops.
The bronze buckle guides you to the shade of metals you should wear and this will lead to coordinating your ensemble accordingly. Although one is spoiled for choice, this mock-croc belt exudes elegance and it is incredibly affordable. Another alternative would be a simple calfskin.
