Beautiful but flawed
on January 27, 2011
The buckle on this belt is fastened to the belt using two small screws that go through the leather and sort of "clamp" it against the other side. I had my belt maybe 3 weeks when the leather gave way and the buckle came off!!
I could have "fixed" this by cutting the end of, re-notching the end to match the current and "re-clamp" but I knew that it would simply fail again.
This is a flawed design, many of the "dressy" buckles that are meant to look good, have this and they cannot take the actual pressure.
Instead, I am returning my belt for a credit and I already have a nice Carhartt belt picked out.
The belt IS very nice looking which is why it got 2 stars instead of 1. Reversible is VERY nice, but the lousy clamp design ruined it for me. (Exchanging made no sense either since the buckles will all have the "clamp" design)
It is not allowing me to mark this as an item I purchased (I guess since I returned it)
