‘Is there more to belts for men than fit and quality?’ Well, yes, there is.

 

Wearing a belt is something most men are accustomed to. Given that you’re here, reading this, you’ve probably asked yourself this question in one form or another:

‘Is there more to belts for men than fit and quality?’ Well, yes, there is.

 A narrow leather belt (in the same colour as your leather dress shoes-to wear with your leather dress shoes.

A narrow canvas belt (in the same colour as your favourite sneakers) -to wear with your sneakers.

White shoes are the exception and should never be paired with white belts for men. For the best look with white shoes, choose a black belt instead.

Narrow belts with dress pants, chinos, dark jeans, and trouser shorts; and wide belts with lighter denims, cargo pants, and cargo shorts.

 

The belt and shoes should be of the same colour. Black with black, brown with brown, blue with blue, and so on. The only exception here is when your shoes are white or brightly coloured. On those instances, a black belt is usually your best bet.

The belt material should match the shoe Material. Leather with leather, suede with suede, and canvas with canvas.

Match belt and trouser formality. A dressy leather belt wouldn’t look at home on a pair of rough cargo pants.

 

Wide casual belts are best worn with casual pants, such as lighter denim pants and cargo pants.

Narrow belts, on the other hand, are best worn with dressier pants, such as dress pants, chinos, and dark denims.
