Men's Braid Dress Belt
Good looking belt BUT you can't put the buckle in a hole. I will return it.

This not "beautifully made" belt weave is bulged on the top and bottom edges in several places. One of the strips on the outside (show side) was broken, and the strip end was a light tan, very visable flaw. I will return the belt for a refund. (Of course, I get to pay for the time and gas to Sears or the return postage).

Are you kidding? Calling this a belt I mean.
This was undoubtedly the cheapest and least functional belt I have ever purchased (unable to be worn and returned immediately). The buckle does not function as it is too flimsy and the buckle post was not long enough too reach the buckle metal frame. This belt cannot be worn as the post is too flimsy to pierce an almost impenatrable belt braid. Terrible quality. These belts should be donated to recycling.

Sturdy and stylish
Long lasting belt at a good price.

I bought the other loosely braded belt from Lands end and it was terrible. This one is great. Holds its shape and looks good. I threw prior one out.

Heads up -- this belt runs crazy small.
The belt is gorgeous but the fit is absurd. I ordered it for my son (on sale). He wears a size 29 pants, so I thought a 30 would be great. So wrong. It ran so small that it barely fit around his waist, w/out being buckled -- now I have to go to the expense and trouble of returning it. Lands End, this is so not like you!!

Great quality but size issues
My previous similar belt was a 32 and was a bit too long so I ordered a 30. It turned out to be 4 inches shorter so I had to return it for a 32. (I recommend when you order, measure a belt that fits well and then call Lands' End to find out how long the listed sizes really are.) The quality and finish are great and can easily go with dressy or casual. The buckle on my older version is shiny brass but the new belt has a really nice antique brass finish.

Had to send back.
Last braided belt I purchased from Lands' End has a much different braid pattern than this new product. It was a size 36 and fit fine. I think the new pattern will last longer. This new braid belt is marked the same size 36, but it is 2" shorter than the old version. I have to send back and order a larger size.

Dark brown with a rich look and feel ...
The belt looks great, is true to size, and the dark brown comes close to a burgundy with just the right amount of shine. Fits me perfectly. My only other braided belt dates back 10 years and is soft and supple. This one is much more rigid, even more so than an ordinary leather belt, so I have little to compare it too. Does it fit? Yes. Do I wear it often? Yes.

The first braided belt I ordered for my husband lasted over 20 years and he loved it. This belt lasted one MONTH and every time he wore it he complained about the difficulty of finding a "hole". Within a month the prong has come off of the buckle and I'm now returning the belt. The difference in quality may be attributed to the belt being "Made in USA" 20 years ago and the one ordered last month was "Made in China".
