Every man needs a leather belt, and everyone should have at least one. That’s just how important leather is. It can mean the difference between a lasting wardrobe and a sad, lonely past. This article will give you some important tips on picking the best leather belt you can.
First of all, realize that real leather is much better than fake leather. You know the feeling… you are out with your friends and you rip through the fabric as if it were made of alligator skin. No one can resist that kind of charm. Even the girls want to get their hands on those gorgeous belts! And remember that belts made of leather are heavier than other belts. So if you have plans to buy some belts for your next hunting trip, don’t bother with fake leather.
Real leather belts come in different quality grades, from Top Grain to split grain leather belts. Full grain leather is the highest grade available and is usually used in belts that will be put through service rifles (which are made of metal and have a very heavy buckle). When looking for leather belts, pay close attention to the full-grain leather so you get something that is comfortable and durable.
But don’t go for the obvious. There are imitation leathers that look almost as good as full-grain leather. Beware! If you see an “imitation” belt with nice shiny buckles, stitching, and a leather color that is close to that of the original leather day lung ca sau, you’re not getting the real thing. The designer might be selling the fake leather belt with the “look” because it is cheaper, or he may be trying to make a big profit by passing it off as the real thing.
Don’t take it personally though. There are plenty of people who sell really cheap belts that are nearly as good as the real thing. They use cheaper leather and fill the holes with cheaper material. This means that the belt will eventually wear out and the buyer will have to buy a new one. But there are ways to tell if the buyer is telling the truth about the product or not.
When wearing a piece of wide belt from the bronze age or before, check the buckle for rust. The best example would be to touch the buckle to a magnet. If the metal is still pliable, the metal buckle should still be able to bend. If it doesn’t, you’re probably dealing with fake leather which won’t last long. Genuine leather belts were always made from top grain leather which is still available today.
