Size: get the normal size of your pants. some belts (especially Dickies) run a little short, this is pretty true to size. It is also a little stretchy, as you would expect from leather.
Color: nice black, just about as shiny as it appears in the pictures.
Use: i use it for work to hold up pants that can get pretty loaded down with tools and radio. but I wouldnt hesitate to use it on a dressed up yet still casual event.
Notes: I wish the buckle was replaceable (when the belt itself loops over and snaps shut so you can use interchangeable buckles), but I am still quite happy with this product and will buy another one when needed, and probably a Carhartt brown belt when my current brown belt wears out.
Update 8/4/2013 - Almost 3 years later apparently, after nearly daily use the only real problem it's had is the 1 row of stitching that stops the metal belt keeper thing from sliding has come out. This is not a problem at all, just that it can slide an inch over to the buckle now. I bought another one because I lost some weight and needed a smaller size. Strangely enough, this one seems to be even a little better quality. It does Not say "made in china" like the other one, there is now double stitching around the metal belt keeper, and has a little Carhartt cloth tag on the inside near the buckle. I expect to see the same, if not better, durability out of this one.
