My New Campomaggi Belt After One Week

Daniele and his DAVIDE Studded Leather Belt by Campomaggi

Daniele and his Campomaggi collection: COLOMBO messenger bag, DANIELE belt loop pouch, and DAVIDE Studded Leather Belt

Last week I received my new Campomaggi belt. It looks amazing and I love it. The problem is that it is going to require, at a minimum, a pair of jeans that I love and looks amazing. Luckily, we are going to Italy next week and I have seen jeans there that definitely can stack up to a Campomaggi belt.

The other problems are: first, that it is not a belt that you wear with the boring shirts that I wear at work; and, second, I don’t want to draw attention to the muffin top that is starting to develop over my jeans.

So my new belt is causing me to pay attention to my figure and my wardrobe. I have been wearing it with the coolest clothes I have and have a few initial impressions to report.

First, it takes a while for the belt loop to loosen up and, at the beginning, it is rather laborious to undo the belt. So plan your rest breaks accordingly.
Second, I am wearing the belt on the tightest hole, which means that the extremity of the belt flaps around a bit and I have to tuck it into my pocket. Make sure to measure the distance from the belt buckle to the hole you use in a belt and let us know. We’ll be able to comment about the fit.
Third (and finally), there is a little patch without studs on the belt. This is designed to help the flap slide over the belt and under the pant’s belt loop. So make sure to position this patch below the pant’s belt loop to help make taking the belt on and off easier.

  • well, Daniele, this is turning into a reality blog! Some of these issues, esp. the length one, are deal breakers, or would be for me. One can’t have self-respect AND one’s belt tip flapping around, if you know what I mean. Do the studs make it impossible for the good cobbler to shorten it? Maybe you will turn against the belt. I will stay tuned.

  • Tom, good point, I love the belt but will the flap bug me? I am going to think about the possibility of shortening it.
