Gui’s tips for wearing belts

27 September 2017


FECNOTE, EXFORD, LANGLEY, MOOR 1Last time I told you how much I love braces/suspenders.

But that doesn’t mean that I don’t like belts. I do wear them… sometimes.

There are two important things to think about when choosing a belt.

Firstly they must go with your shoes. A blue suede belt with blue suede shoes for example, or brown leather with your brown monks.

Secondly if you are wearing a tie, this tie should just touch your belt and not hide it.

Also a bonus tip; try and avoid low rise pants or you are going to look like you are “cut in two” with short legs and a huge trunk!

A last trick for you gentlewomen and gentlemen. If you want your belts not to be too deformed (because when you wear them often, they are), just think about wearing them the other way.  Right for left handed, left for right handed and you will even out the distortion.

Enjoy these first days of Autumn/Fall!

    You are so right about the belt and tie combo – it really annoys me when I see the tie overhang the belt!
