The history of belts is as old as the history of man
Wearing belts to job interviews and important business meetings, for example, is important. Belts extend to more than just suits of course.
The black dress belt
If you work in a corporate environment with a strict dress code, chances are you’re usually wearing a black or brown leather dress belt at the office.
I remember my time at UBS Mayfair. The dress code demanded you wear either a black suit or a navy blue suit, complete with black shoes. Therefore it goes without saying that when one is dressed in either of these, it behooves the gentleman to wear a black belt. Not brown, not any other colour. Just black.
The belt is an object present in the man’s clothing baggage since the dawn of time. It is an element that sees its birth as a result of a simple need for practicality, which has then become useful, until it is able to combine versatility and elegance together.
