My Best Belt Ever
I just ordered and received the second of this exact belt. I wore the first one every day, for at work and casual use. After two years of daily use, it hardly looked used at all: The finish was excellent. After 4-5 years of daily use, this belt was finally getting a comfortable wear, and so I bought a second belt for work use. I can wear it with a casual suit, or with jeans, or with dockers.
The nicest thing about this belt is that the buckle, being a reduced size and the same vertical width as the belt, doesn't dig into your gut! I can't understand why more belts aren't designed like this. There is no issue with buckle failure for it's size. The leather is rigid, and easily holds up to items being hung off it.
