Gentlemen and fellow followers,
The spring has finally come! After the bank holiday weekend and hours spent in the sun, it is time to have a look at one of my personal favourite gentleman’s accessory: the male belt.
A gentleman’s belt can enhance your look and coordinate all your accessories, from your watch, shoes and socks to your pocket square. A small summary of reasons why to wear a belt and how to wear a belt can be found here.
With the summer on its way, gentlemen and fellow followers, it is time to adapt your style to the hot season. You can put away your classic black and brown belts until the autumn and it is time to upgrade your belt to this season fashionable: Gentleman’s Woven Belt.
The mix of cotton and leather are a nice luxury combination that can go nicely with a summer suit, a pair of jeans or chinos and can be used both for formal meetings or a relaxed night out with the fellow gentlemen.
Here is a small selection of some of my favourite luxurious gentlemen woven belts:
The Plaited Cord Belt by Massimo Dutti
The braided cotton and leather belt has a chrome buckle and one loop of leather stitching. This is an ideal belt for a white pair of chinos or jeans. You can find the belt here
The Lastman Multicoloured Plaited Belt by Ted Baker
The trim is made from 100% leather together with a metal buckle fastening. The Ted Baker is embossed on the leather loop for those Gentlemen who like to make a point about their appearance. This belt is a nice addition to a bright pair of navy shorts or chinos for a more trendy look. More information about the belt can be found here.
The Woven Belt by Armani
Made in Italy, the leather is made from calf skin and textile fibres providing the belt with a luxurious look and feel when worn. The Ivory colour of the woven belt is a stylish and classy addition to a dark suit or dark pair of jeans. Alternatively it can be worn with a white pair of jeans with a blue shirt; more information can be found here.
So Gentlemen, which luxury male woven belt will you be opting for this summer 2013?
The Frames of Life story by Giorgio Armani is actually quite an interesting story. The main actor, Luc Writer, is a great gentleman character. The story depicting the craftsmanship behind the gentlemen luxury eye wear.
If you want to learn more about the story, you can find it here.
Here is a small video featuring Luc below and the making of the story – enjoy!
