Belt It On
A well-dressed man knows that pulling a belt through the loops of his crisply pressed slacks is just a final step in the sartorial process; like tying a shoe, it’s an absolute necessity. He also knows that this rings equally true when he downshifts to a casual mode. In these situations, the thin leather strap can be left on the hanger until a more formal occasion calls. Pull out a Polo Ralph Lauren belt for your laid back weekend look instead. Leather with an eye catching buckle or rich brown colors will go perfectly with jeans and a sweater and/or flannel. Naturally woven straps with outdoorsy details pull through loops with ease and the style is proof of a man’s man who doesn’t take himself too seriously.
