I received this belt as a Christmas present 2012. It looked nice, but when I removed it from its box I noticed a strong, offensive odor. I presumed that this might just be the chemicals and would wear off in a few days. After hanging it to air a few days, I hung it in my cupboard - within hours the vile stench began to fill my room. I ultimately interred it to a small draw containing a few pairs of socks and trinkets. These socks have since become unwearable as the stink too from exposure to the belt. I will never buy Van Heusen. A year later, the good looking belt has been thrown away and the drawer deoderised, but on a warm day a phantom stench still may be savored from its depths.
