Shame on Nautica for stooping this low!
I see one person found my original review helpful. Hope you have better luck and sorry for steering you wrong!!
I bought the Nautica and two other brands to compare. I thought I'd keep the winner and return the other two. I ended up keeping them all because they are all very nice. This one edged out the others by a nose. They were all about the same price and similar quality. This one is a bit thicker than the others but also a bit more sturdy. Depending on your belt loops you may not be able to use it due to the thickness. Otherwise, this is the one.
Update: After wearing it for about three years, a lot of the braids suddenly fell apart, so I'm reducing my review from 5 stars to 4 stars. I got a non-braided belt as my next one and it is sturdier than this braided belt: Dockers Men's 35mm Feather Edge Belt
Other reviewers were correct. This belt looks nice and seems well-made but isn't. Within a couple of months the leather holes where the tab sits tore apart. It looked like someone had taken a knife and sliced right down the middle of the belt. For the price paid, I expected to get more than 2 or 3 months of use out of this. I suspect that the problem is that all of these braided leather belts are made in the same factory overseas, and they all suffer from the same shoddy quality. Back to the drawing board.
I purchased this because I was having trouble finding a black braided leather belt that would last through more than three months of daily wear despite trying several brands. (Avoid the Dockers braided belts. The leather breaks along the top and bottom edges of the belts within weeks. This has happened to me with three separate belts in two different colors, so it's clearly just poor quality materials at work.)
The leather and construction on this belt looks to be of reasonable quality, but I have to say that after less than a day I'm considering returning it. The problem is that the loop near the buckle that holds the end of the belt is too tight. You cannot get the end of the belt through without forcing it, which twists the leather and causes the silver Nautica logo to flip around backwards.
It's possible that with some time the loop will stretch to make it easier to buckle and unbuckle the belt, but my guess is that the leather will just end up tearing fairly quickly. That's a shame because this seems to be an otherwise attractive and fairly well made belt.
Of course it's always possible that I just got a lemon.

The belt is very nice looking, and seems like, in general, it will hold up well over time. However, the small band that you thread the belt through is a little tight for the belt. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Kejeki
Pretty beefy belt but the weird metal loop binds up sometimes when your threading the end through it. A normal leather loop would be better. Read morePublished 24 days ago by Hungry Hippo
