7 best men's belts

The inclusion or exclusion of a belt can make or break an outfit. It's a staple. So, what do you have to consider when buying a?

The most important things to determine are versatility and durability. A good belt should go with a lot of outfits and you will last a very long time - so do not be discouraged by something a little more expensive. Best Leather Belts

Here's a range of choices, from high quality Italian leather to more relaxed fabric options. Our choices are from the main street, but sit next to some designer offers for good measure.

1. Reiss Mitchell: £ 35, Reiss
Two belts for the price of one - fantastic. This is reversible, so you get a grained leather on one side and suede on the other, which means you can subtly mix your look. The dark brown color and the silver buckle contribute to its classic look.

2. Ted Baker Sorcha: £ 39, Ted Baker

The fact that this Ted Baker belt is woven means that there are more adjustment options than usual and we believe that weaving relaxes an outfit, making it ideal for stylish and casual looks. Secondly, the two-tone, navy and purple design adds color to the procedures. We would pair this one with chinos.

3. Gucci leather belt with double G buckle: £ 240, Gucci. Best Leather Belt

Gucci just oozes quality. It is very easy for people to reject pieces like this because they are too expensive, but it would be useless. The belt is handmade in Italy from soft black leather and a brass "GG" buckle. That's all you need for a belt: versatile, durable and, if you're so inclined, you can use it as a statement piece, thanks to the shiny Gucci buckle that's enough to put on an outfit. We would wear black jeans, a white T-shirt, Chelsea boots in black leather (we emphasize the leather, no suede) and a black jacket.

4. Paul Smith's Brown Leather Men's Belt with Signature Keeper: £ 110, Paul Smith

British brand Paul Smith is known for combining classic designs and techniques with his signature colorful stripes. This belt is handcrafted in Spain in calf leather and has a silver buckle and a natural leather lining. The goalie of the group is what will be noticed - but it is still discreet enough to be worn with most things. It's a little narrower than some on the list, keep this in mind before you buy.

5. Faded Topman Faux Leather Belt: £ 15, Topman

If you are looking for something a bit lighter, opt for this great value belt. At just £ 15 it's by far the cheapest on our list and you'll have a lot of wear and tear. Okay, that's not true leather, but it's neutral in color and will give you a lot of outfit options.

6. Diesel B-Washy: £ 35, Diesel

The textured cotton fabric of this belt makes it more attractive than leather or suede, and the rusty color helps it. Add this to the Mohawk signature stamped on the metal buckle and you have a belt that makes a subtle statement. We think it will go well with stone-washed denim.

7. Ralph Lauren Saddle Leather Belt: £ 49, Ralph Lauren. Best Leather Belt

If you want something classic, try this Ralph Lauren belt in versatile tan. It is made of top quality Italian leather that you can always count on in your wardrobe ten years later. The reassuring weight loop (but not too chunky) and the slightly pointed end help to make everything look simplified. The branding - this instantly recognizable polo pattern - is subtly embossed towards the end of the belt, keeping things discrete. It also comes in black.

The verdict: Men's belts

The criteria we set out earlier are all about making the most of your money, which belt will last you the longest and which you can wear with the most outfits. With that in mind, we would go for the versatile, all-rounder-Reiss Mitchell.
