Dramatic decline in quality
on May 6, 2013
I purchased this belt last year and it was the greatest belt I have ever worn. I took it on a trip up the Indian Hymalayas, the pants disintegrated but the belt stayed the same. I eventually gave it to a gentlemen in Sikkim in return for his hospitality. So now I have ordered the exact same belt again on Amazon.
I am amazed by what I saw. The buckle, instead of being thick leather (real or imitation) is now shiny plastic. The buckle itself now moves around too much. The belt itself has become much rougher. The elastic has dramatically increased. Now this belt is too flimsy to hold up my pants.
It is a shame Dockers has killed off a excellent product to shave a few cents off from manufacturing costs. My last dockers belt was worth every cent of the 22 dollars but I can not say the same for this newer generation. Please do yourself a favor and look elsewhere.
