Low-key quality belt recommendations?

Hi! Looking for some help on finding a low key but quality classic belt.

I’m mostly looking for a thinner (not super skinny) waist belt in tan or beige/white with gold hardware. I mostly see either very obvious logo belts or ones with lots of embellishments. So far the best one I’ve seen is the classic style by Ferragamo, but wondering if there are other brands that you could recommend? Does not need to be premier designer, just quality :smile:

Thanks in advance!

I think there are some really nice, understated options right now from Isabel Marant, Bottega and Loewe. I immediately spotted these, all of which are on the thinner side (less than 32mm). Marant also has a plain and simple belt currently in tan leather for under a hundred euros, but I'm not sure if it comes in GHW.

If you have a good gobbler ask him/her to make you belt! I think that way you can choose leather and at least in my opinion their buckles tend to be very discreet.

Thanks for the suggestions! I’ve actually been to a few small leather shops to get belts made, but so far I haven’t really found any with buckle options or leather colors/widths I liked.

I did see a few Isabel Marant belts I liked but most were sold out in my size :sad:

Also found a new brand with excellent belts of the type I’m looking for called Anderson’s, but sadly the tan is also sold out in my size

that looks very nice ^ sorry it's sold out

Look for small men's rather than women's.

Etinger do one for men in tan (they go right down to 75cm)


Carter in Tan from BBCo looks like a possible too but not sure which size you are (I'm sure they'd make you one in your size).


Couldn't find ghw though

Hemes and Gucci do all sorts of low key belts. They just don't stick in people's minds as being from those companies

ITA re men’s belts, but I’m not a small size :smile: I borrow DH’s Weston belts. Along the lines of FerrAlamo mentioned above, perhaps Bally could be a possibility too. Any men’s shoe store, at varying price points, like church‘s, Alden may have some options.

I was super excited that the Anderson’s belt was back in stock on Net-a-Porter when I checked this morning!!!

Managed to snag one :biggrin:

Will update on the quality when it arrives!

Can happily say that the quality of Anderson's belts and leather is superb. Super soft and buttery with really nice hardware. They seem to have other classic belt styles and colors too.
