As much as we love to use belts as a way to add a bit of color or style to an outfit, there is something to be said about a basic brown leather belt for casual wear. For the most part, it will match everything in our closet, and if it is well made it will last for years on end. Sure, there are flashier options out there, but sometimes you just need to keep things simple. Recently, our friends at Southern Tide decided the timing was right for them to release their take on this wardrobe staple with their Classic Leather Belt ($65).
Of course, Southern Tide made sure their version of the classic leather belt has a couple of things that will truly set it apart from the rest. The first thing you will notice is the rivited keeper. A small touch for sure, but a very classy way of Southern Tide to make sure their signature Skipjack remains in plain view. Upon further inspection, you will also notice that the buckle has a shape that is a bit different than most, that is because it is an authentic nautical shackle. Again, a small touch, but one that certainly sets this belt apart. Available in light or dark brown (shown), and made out of 1 3/8″ saddle leather, the Southern Tide Classic Leather Belt will quickly become your weekend go to.
