Wow! I needed a dark brown belt to match a pair of dark brown shoes. I have been through five other brands, and either the dark brown wasn't really dark, or the belt was cheaply made (or both). This belt is clearly high quality, and the color is as dark as I needed. This is indeed wide for a dress belt, but not too wide. I would not want to go any larger for dress or suit trousers. If you're looking for a wide belt for jeans, this is not wide enough, and it's too dressy for jeans anyway. I'm so pleased with this belt I am ordering a few more in different colors.

Shouldn't it match? I bought this belt in the Chili Burnished Calf to match a pair ofAllen-Edmonds Weybridges in the same color. I was a bit shocked to find that the belt didn't particularly match the shoes- it was kind of a dull brown, and not very dressy. The shoes are tremendous and I would recommend them to anyone. The belt? My Perry Ellis is a better color match, and dressier.

Bought this belt for son's Christmas 2010. Returned because found a better priced belt that was reversible with black/brown colors. The belt was very nice and would be great for suits that need this leather quality.

Great belt; very high quality. I have waffled in the past on dishing out the extra cash for a "nice" belt, but I am very happy that I finally made the commitment.

Belt didn't hold up. The black looked like it as painted on. It was a gift and I'm embarrassed that this expensive belt didn't hold up any better than a $25.00 belt.

This belt starts wearing out within 2 weeks. I have already started to notice that some of the brown coloring is wearing off and can see the lighter brown underneath. I am disappointed, as this is a lot to spend on a belt to show visible wear within a couple of weeks. I guess I will go back to the higher-quality Cole Haan belts. At least I gave Allen Edmonds a try!

All Allen-Edmonds stuff is top notch. The belts, like the shoes are well made. The leather is pliable but firm. Fit is great and always order up 2" from your actual waist size. I know they are expensive, but they will last for many, many years.

Nicely constructed belt. I didn't like how they etch "Allen Edmonds" on the top front of the buckle. The color also was a little off for my taste. But those are all personal tastes. The quality felt good. Smooth leather. Stitching didn't stick out and wasnt rough. Backing felt sturdy. If you like the style I think you'd be happy with the belt.

Wardrobe staple. I can wear this belt with my best suits, a pair of jeans, or khakis. It's conservative and has a solid construction.

This is very handsome smartly styled dress belt. Masculine in design & style. I love the double keepers on this belt, which is a favorite of mine. The leather quality for this belt is of the finer grade. This one is another one of my favorites to go with dress shoes. Great merchandise Zappos; you've done it again.

I ordered 6 different belts for my husband to try on, and he picked this one hands down. It is super soft, just the right width, and goes great with jeans or dress pants. After we bought it, I realized that it is calf skin. I feel bad about that, and wonder if it is part of the horrific veal industry, so I won't be ordering another calf skin anything again. I would love it if leather products were connected with humane treatment of animals, which is big in California.

I bought an Allen Edmonds several months ago. Paid around the same price, which is rather expensive. But AE is made in the US by an Amercian company. I'm willing to pay more for that. But this belt is a different story. I have a $$ outsourced belt by another company, and this belt looks and feels almost identical. I don't mind paying more for AE, but not 3x as much. You can buy a comparable belt for much less. I bought this belt in two colors and will keep them out of sheer laziness. Sorry, but this is very overpriced for what it is.
