Misleading name and description
on September 30, 2012
Well, first of all, I got a really huge belt. I do not know whether they shipped the right item or maybe some other size, because there was no invoice or label or anything else in the package - just a huge belt (well, maybe not that huge, but I ordered a size small, usually wear size 2 pants, and the last hole on this belt was still 5 inches off). Maybe I could have returned it, but since I did not have a receipt, the hassle probably would not have been worth the whole price of the belt.
What I ended up doing instead was to make another hole on the right spot by using a very hot needle. I have done that (or something similar) several times with real leather items, and know how leather behaves (and smells) when it burns. This did not do anything similar, but kind of melted. It is made out of some compressed material, which may contain leather (hence the really strong almost-leather smell), but calling it genuine leather is like calling a particle board real wood.
(Anyway, the action was successful, so the belt does fit now, and it is quite nice.)
