      I’ve gone through two Profuomo belts in two years. I wear a size 85 since it’s the smallest size they stock and I have to punch two extra holes for it to fit right. The lining on the back breaks down and starts rubbing off, then I throw it away and get a new one.

        Just look at the label and don‘t buy ones that use anything but genuine leather. That does include a majority of belts produced today but they can still be found

          if a belt says "genuine" leather on it or "genuine" anywhere in the product description stay far away
          >Genuine leather doesn’t just mean that the product is made of real leather (which it is), but it also means it is the lowest quality of all products made out of real leather. Basically, you should read it as: "At least it’s genuine leather."

    I’ve had my filson belt for about 3 years now and it’s still in great condition. I think I paid like anywhere from $80-100

      I’ve been using the same belt for 10 years now lmao. it’s kind of beat up looking, but it never broke and is perfectly usable
      definitely look into belts made from a single piece of thick full grain leather like these

      I bought this belt 12 years ago for 30 dollars at a mall in some town along the highway in Georgia. It says "Amish handcrafted made in USA"

      there is no way for the lining to come off if there is no lining

      Surprisingly my Uniqlo leather belt lasted 2 years

      Looking at these now, on the west coast though so no Amish near me to buy locally

    Just buy any thick full grain leather belt with no lining. It’s pretty hard to break those. I’ve been using pic for a year now and it still looks brand new.

    you want to buy full grain leather belts that do not have a corrected grain, not cheap belts made of 2 pieces of leather glued together.
    you can get ultra high end belts for like $50 from no name guys on etsy. you can’t really possibly make a belt higher end than the ones on there, they’re at the ceiling. equivalent to or better quality than belts that no name brands would charge you $100-300 for or designer brands would charge you a thousand for.
