    Belt Trouble

    So, as we all know, the stylish man should match his belt to his shoes. However, I have a slight issue in that I own a pair of Clark's DBs in this lovely but unusual colour:



    Anyone have any idea where I might find a belt that vaguely matches?

    You could go to studio d'artisan but then you're looking at about a ton. I'd opt for something in tan instead which will go with more items in your wardrobe.
    “We have such a heritage in this country. People from other countries, all the R’n'B stars, they come to Savile Row and they’re in immaculate three-piece suits. Then you see British guys and they just can’t seem to dress. We have all these fashion agendas, punk and Vivienne Westwood and everything, but the queue seems to be at Abercrombie & Fitch down the road. That is just heartbreaking to me. Why does everyone want a polo shirt and three-quarter-length combat shorts?”

    I already own various tan belts but they don't quite look right...closest I've found is this asos belt, arrived today and not sure whether or not to keep it, it's not as good a match as i'd hoped from photos:

    Personally when wearing casual clothes, the rules relax a little. Not so strict on the whole belt and shoes, Ideally yes, but sometimes for me a belt is just a belt.

    Yeah, I get kinda OCD over minor aspects of fashion

    Actually tried on that ASOS belt with the boots, rather than holding them together going 'waaahhh, they don't match', and it's close enough when they're at opposite ends of a leg. So, er, thread closed I guess? Cheers guys.

    Just put on a pair of suspenders, they don't have to match your shoes.

    Haha, I do have one pair of chinos with brace buttons which came with a pair, but I don't wear them that often, not quite my style.

    Yeah, I realise that mismatching can look good and I'm happy to do it occasionally, just feel that if an outfit's already got a lot going on then matching'll be the safest option.
