INSPIRATIONS



DO'S - FORMAL BELT



1. THE FORMAL BELT SHOULD MATCH YOUR SHOES IN COLOR, CONTRAST, HUE, AND TONE. BONUS POINTS IF THE BELT IS MADE FROM THE SAME LEATHER.



2. A SHINIER LEATHER FINISH IS MORE ACCEPTABLE



3. IT SHOULD BE 1 1/4" - 1 3/8" WIDE & APPROXIMATELY 1/8" THICK



4. THE BUCKLE SHOULD BE MINIMALIST & POLISHED.



DO'S - CASUAL BELT



1. CASUAL BELTS DO NOT HAVE TO PERFECTLY MATCH SHOES. FOR INSTANCE YOU CAN HAVE DARK BROWN SHOES AND A MID-BROWN BELT, OR YOU CAN HAVE WHITE SHOES WITH A LIGHT BROWN BELT.



2. THE BELT'S WIDTH CAN VARY BETWEEN 1" AND 2" & THE LEATHER'S THICKNESS CAN RANGE FROM BELOW 1/8" UP TO 3/4".



3. THE BELT SHOULD BE LONG ENOUGH THAT IT GOES UNDER THE FIRST BELT LOOP AFTER THE BUCKLE.



4. ITS BUCKLE MAY BE ROUND OR FLAT, SMALL OR LARGE, MATTE OR POLISHED. THE MORE CASUAL THE OCCASION, THE LESS ELEGANT THE BUCKLE REQUIRED.



LEATHER BELT CARE



1. IF DIRTY, CLEAN THE BELT WITH A SOFT RAG AND VERY LITTLE WARM WATER. IF NECESSARY, USE LEATHER CLEANER



2. LAY THE BELT DOWN ON A TOWEL AND APPLY LEATHER CONDITIONER



3. WORK THE CONDITIONER INTO THE LEATHER WITH A FINE 100% COTTON CLOTH



4. WHEN EVENLY APPLIED, LEAVE THE CONDITIONER TO BE ABSORBED. THIS SHOULD TAKE 15-30 MINUTES.



5. THE BELT SHOULD NOW BE DRY. MAKE SURE THAT THERE IS NO RESIDUE ON THE BELT, LEST IT SINK INTO YOUR CLOTHING.



6. REPEAT APPROXIMATELY ONCE A SEASON, OR AS YOU SEE FIT.
