A good belt isn't the sexiest thing in your wardrobe but, like nice underwear and deodorant, its a deal-sealer your style thrives on. Choose unwisely and you'll look like an amateur. To build a belt wardrobe that works hard for you—and we're talking about three maybe four styles, max—stick with belts that are on the skinny side.
Because black goes with everything and brown is its own can of worms, here are our picks for the best black belts money can buy. Whether you hunt down these specific styles or use these picks as a field guide of sorts is up to you. Just don't ignore them completely.
If you have the scratch, a shiny black crocodile belt will pump up every outfit in your closet whether it's black jeans and a black T-shirt or a bold-color suit.
Exceedingly elegant and highly confident, it's proof that a belt can do a lot more than simply blend into your outfit. We love Tods just-flashy-enough spin on the style, but you can find different takes from the luxury brand of your choice. Just be sure to go with one that has an understated buckle and relatively thin width. You're going for swaggy rich-guy not flashy drug lord.
This belt hits all the marks of the others on this list, but comes in a textured linear leather that you're not going to find anywhere else. It's a small touch, but one that stands out when paired with a Prince of Wales check suit or a pair of twill chinos and a sweater. The gold buckle meanwhile, only adds to the special, dressed up vibe. When your fit just isn't poppin', try this belt on for size and you just might find that it does the trick. Think of it like the stylish man's version of red lipstick.
A plaque buckle belt is a preppy staple but you need not worship at the alter of boat shoes in order to rotate one into your wardrobe. We love it because it looks tidy even when you're packing extra weight, and that it goes with everything in your wardrobe, from denim and chinos to your slim-cut suits. J.Crew's antiqued buckle has a bit more personality than your average slider, giving tailored looks subtle cowboy vibes without taking things too far off topic.
