View Full Version : Which belt to wear?
08-01-2005, 12:13 PM
I have a question. I'm considering an ensemble for warm weather vacation
wear including light colored linen or khaki pants, panama hat, maybe a Rayon
casual shirt and white bucks. Also a blazer or sportcoat to dress it up for evening. What belt would you suggest? I fear the white belt bringing to mind the 70's leisure suit horrors of Mr Roper. Any suggestions? What's cool? What's vintage? Anybody else care?

I wouldn't go with a white belt. Perhaps a colored cloth belt, you see them in Brooks, Ralph Lauren and other places. Or an old, worn-out tie worn as a belt. Since you are going to wear rayon casual shirts I would say wearing a casual belt would probably be best.

Tommy Bahama has some good old school looking belts, and if you want a more casual look you can go for a military style cotton web belt with a brass or silver colored buckle.

As Vladimir stated above, you can also mix it up with a striped belt which is more of the Palm Beach casual look.
White suede belt with white suede shoes.
If you want to go Miami Vice, wear a yellow or pink belt with the white shoes.

Khaki cotton web with military slide buckle. If the shirt is untucked, it really does not matter anyway.
