I have only been using this belt for a short while, and I will update this review over time. So far, this belt is everything you would want from a belt.
It's apparent that the belt itself is constructed of quality leather. Thick and tough, yet flexible. I don't think this belt needs to be broken in.
The buckle also appears to be rugged. Despite these tough components, the belt is actually quite elegant in its appearance. You could wear this belt for work, as it should have no problem supporting heavy loads, but you could also easily wear this belt with dress pants. A versatile choice.
I look at the price as one that someone would have to pay for a quality belt. I have no problem paying a bit more for high quality. I think that's what you get here.
