The pictures of this belt are highly misleading. It would seem to me from the pictures that the ends of the belt are tapered, this is the reason I selected it. It had a more dressy look that appealed to me. But he belt is the same width all the way through: one and a half inches. So it's just another clunky run-of -mill wide leather belt.
This is a good quality belt. It is genuine leather with a very nice buckle. It is casual enough to wear with jeans, but the buckle makes it nice enough to wear with slacks. The buckle is removable, as there is one, short piece of leather that has a hole in each end, is folded around the buckle, sandwiches the long leather strap (which also has a hole in it), and is secured by a single screw through all three leather layers. While this allows for buckle removal, I do not care for the design as this screw is the sole stress point. I also note that while the belt leather is thick, the loop of leather that holds the excess strap against the waist is very thin and broke off the first time I used the belt.
I shop on Overstock regular. I saw this belt and I like the color because it was Tan but when I received my order it was a different color. It look as a dress belt in the picture but it is a regular for your jeans. Very disappointed with the purchase I will not recommend to a friend.
