My New Belt and Italian Belt Sizes

Last year we decided to start carrying leather belts because both Marco and Vincenzo made some really cool belts. When we placed our first order with Dionigi back in January I had an eye on a belt that would make the perfect replacement for my aging, not-so-cool-anymore, brown dress belt.  Unfortunately, when the belts arrived none of them fit a 32 waist. That came as a little of a surprise because we had done some research on Italian and American belt sizes. So we placed another order to make up for sold inventory and to take care of… people like ME!

Last month my Aldo arrived in the big shipment from Italy and it fit! I got one in espresso and said goodbye to my old belt–finally! I like the Aldo because the stitching lines give it a refined and unique look. The leather is of very good quality and the color looks sharp with my slacks.

The next step was to come up with a system of sizes that would not confuse a potential buyer. So we now show you the range of pants sizes that will fit a certain belt size. If you wear a 30 pants size and you buy a 32-37 belt size, the belt is not going to help you very much.

Now that I am getting used to having a nice belt I am starting to think that I need a black one, and a pair of shoes. Should we starting importing shoes?
