Grosgrain Ribbon Belts by Knot Belt Co.

On November 24, 2010, in Accessories, Belts, Mens, by Ryan & Ben

You know that we have an affinity for belts that are a bit different than your typical leather options.  Though we have only touched on needlepoint belts so far, there are plenty of other options out there that offer great color and design choices.  One of those options is something that everyone should have in their collection, a grosgrain ribbon belt.  If you are looking for your next (or first) ribbon belt, we recommend checking out Knot Clothing and Belt Co.  Whether you are looking for a casual belt with D-Rings ($42), or one with a more traditional Leather Tab ($55), Knot is sure to have something you will love.

We first noticed Knot a few weeks ago when we realized they were following our Twitter account.  After taking a look at their website, we decided we needed to check these belts out in person. We contacted the founder of Knot, Nick Mannella, and he generously offered to send over a couple of belts (the Trout with D-Rings,  and the B.Y.O.B. with Leather Tab). We were impressed with the quality of the product we received.

To be sure, there is nothing worse than a ribbon belt that loosens as the day goes by.  Luckily, the D-Ring belts from Knot don’t suffer from this flaw. The belts are made with high quality ribbon that comes straight from a New England factory and a thick, flexible, lining. As a result, these belts will stay tight all day long and look good doing it.  The leather tabbed versions are just as solid and comfortable.   With 15 styles currently available (the original Knot belt is shown above), and plenty more on the way, Knot is an up and coming company that we think will be showing up in a store near you in the not too distant future.  In the mean time, check out for all of your ribbon belt needs.  If you mention that we sent you, Nick may even throw in a pair of Knot shades.
