SIZE

With a measuring tape, measure the waistline in the exact place where you will wear your belt and find your size through our belt size chart.

STYLE

Always wear a polished leather belt with silver buckle with a suit. And of course, you must match your belt colour to your shoes. A must have in your suit wardrobe is surely a shiny black leather belt, a plain black dress belt or a black crocodile belt, matching with the leather/color of your shoes.
If you’re wearing jeans or chinos with sneakers, you can try a deco tan or suede blue leather belt with satin buckle.
If you like to wear colors and fancy shoes, you can go for a printed leather belt, also in animalier. It doesn’t need to match exactly with your outfit, but it can be a nice add-on.

CUSTOM ENGRAVING
The finishing touch in a gentleman belt is a custom engraving: your initials on the belt tip. Learn more about DIS Inscriptions.

Curiosity: Have you ever thought when men belts became so popular?

During the jazz age (1920s), since they were very comfortable when dancing, compared to the suspenders. But it’s thanks to The Prince of Wales – Edward VIII – that belts became a real fashion accessory, since he used to match them with his shoes. Nowadays, owning custom leather belts is amongst the first rules of a true gentleman.

Some details about DIS man leather belts:

  • Leathers: All DIS belts are made of premium calf leathers (shiny, polished, decò, plain calf, suede, pebble grain, crocodile prints, aminalier pattern, denim); We only use high-quality leathers and fabrics that are very carefully selected.
